I'm Lisa Jenkins and I have loved creating characters from my imagination and bringing them to life for as long as I can remember. I have a degree in Animation and New Media, but during my time at school realized that I prefer to illustrate. I take inspiration from all forms of media to create something of my own; from history around the world to fantasy universes, modern day life to sci-fi utopias. 
Most of my digital art and technical skills were developed though years, days, hours and minutes with drawing tool in hand. With the help of the many amazing digital painters who offer tutorials, critique and advice from friends and colleagues, patience and hard work have made me the artist I am today.
