Jenny Løvlie grew up in Northern-Norway on Ekkerøy, a tiny peninsula sticking out into the Barents Sea, where she was the first child to be born in 12 years.
Summers were spent in the great outdoors under the never setting sun, climbing rocks, watching the seagull-chicks hatching and rock-pooling and the dark winters reading, drawing and making.
Jenny studied Illustration & Animation at Kingston University in London, and graduated with a BA Hons in 2014.
Her love of nature shines through her work and she draws inspiration from the wild landscapes of Scandinavia, nordic folklore and Scandinavian design. She uses bold colours, interesting textures and strong shapes in creating landscapes, people and animals. Jenny is fascinated by the strong bond between humans and animals and the link between humans and nature. Jenny’s favourite things are going on adventures in her van, camping, bird-watching, cooking and reading.
Jenny won the Waterstones Children's book prize for best illustrated book for The Girls, written by Lauren Ace 2019
