Jennifer Ball is a freelance illustrator, graphic designer and painter working and living outside of New York City.
After graduating from the Hartford Art School in Connecticut where she majored in Visual Communication Design and minored in illustration and painting, Jen worked for over 10 years as an in-house and freelance graphic designer.
Though successful, she felt something was always missing. Her inner child was penned up for over 10 begging to be let out. This is when she discovered children’s book illustration as an outlet.
Once released, Jen’s playful side melded with her clean graphic styling to create a digital style that is truly unique.
Jen is an active member of The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators Group as well as Long Island Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, where she holds the position of Assistant Web Coordinator.
