Jen and the Beartree


Illustrations, artwork and unusual handmade animals


Hello and thank you for visiting my page. My name is Jennifer and I love painting, drawing and making things out of wood and leather. I am fascinated by animals and the wonder of the natural world and find inspiration from walking and running in the countryside around my home with my dog Olaf.

I sell original artwork, prints and notecards and I make whimsical creatures out of unwanted wood. I particularly enjoy rescuing and breathing new life into scrap wood that would normally be thrown away. I also make the odd practical thing out of leather such as keyrings and dog leads using English oak bark tanned leather. Everything I make is crafted with care and made to last.

I try to be as environmentally friendly as I can using sustainably-produced oak bark tanned leather from British cows and wood that is either scrap, has had a previous life or is from trees blown down in a storm. I use eco-friendly recycled and recyclable packaging and reduce waste as much as possible. I try to give something back and donate a percentage of my income to charity as well as regularly selling artwork for charity.

I am based in Berkshire near Henley on Thames. I paint in my spare room, make things in the garage or, on nice days, outside in the garden.

If you have any questions please get in touch. I would love to hear from you!
