Jen Klukas is an illustrator and designer who has always considered herself an artist and recently started pursuing an illustration-based practice. She is constantly developing her style through experimentation with new ideas and her intuition. Jen creates lighthearted work as a form of therapy, channeling bad experiences and negative energy into positive work. Her work is rooted in themes of self-care, nature and femininity. Generally, Jen works digitally, but most of her pieces start with hand-drawn work; she finds that this helps with rooting herself when she begins pieces. Recently, Jen has begun to experiment by moving away from detailed work to freeform shapes, bright colours, and patterns.
