Artist Jen Skelley was born and raised in New Jersey. She earned a BFA in design from Syracuse University in upstate New York.

After graduating she worked as an in-house artist creating wrapping paper, cards and many other kinds of social stationery.

A few years later she decided to branch out and open her own illustration studio, specializing in cute whimsical illustrations of animals, flowers and birds.

She works with an impressive list of clients. Jen illustrates children’s toys and games for Galison/Mudpuppy, craft books for American Girl and Mattel, and Stationery with Graphique de France.

Her illustrations for Sweet’N Low’s nationwide campaign were used across various media, including bus stops, magazines, and an animated billboard in Times Square!

Jen lives in western Massachusetts.
