Jennifer Hawkyard

I'm a professional designer and illustrator working in a wide variety of media from Traditional to digital  

I'm delighted to be a member of Origin and displaying a wide selection of my artwork and prints in the gallery in Carmarthen. I'm inspired primarily by the natural world and all the creature and critters I see on my travels and out hiking with my long-legged hound. I love to work in traditional media from coloured pencil and watercolours to gouache. I also enjoy exploring other artistic ventures in the digital work and create mythical creatures and beings using a digital tablet and Photoshop. Having recently moved from Canada I'm enjoying making a home in Wales and getting to know all the amazing people that live here. You can find me in the local area from Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion and Carmarthen displaying my work in local galleries and craft fairs as well as online through a variety of online stores.

I can’t get enough of nature, and I love to explore pattern and texture in my work as well as using brilliant and unusual colours. I’m inspired by many of the ancient art forms from celtic spirals to tribal tattoos.
