Hi there! I am Jenny, aka Jenny Beck, aka Jennifer Beck Harris, illustrator of all things kid-like.

I was born in a castle (as my parents called it) in Chicago, Illinois... four rooms
one on top of the other with steps winding around and around. I knew when I was two
that I wanted to be an artist, filling sheets of looseleaf with drawings, dabs and doodles.

I began as a designer/art director after receiving my BFA from UT in Austin, Texas,
and eventually made the transition into full time freelance illustration. My art has appeared
on Pepsi drink cans, Kindermusik products, Chic-Fil-A kid's meals, and even an Easter Seal!
I've illustrated almost three dozen children's books for HarperCollins, Golden Books,
McMillan, Random House, Sterling, Standard Publishing and Creative Teaching Press,
and illustrated numerous educational projects for Harcourt, Houghton Mifflin, Brown,
Scott Foresman, McGraw Hill, Pearson and Scholastic Press.

My creative process begins with lots of drawing, sketching and doodling on my Wacom,
developing characters, composition and color. You can see some examples of sketches
and the final art created from them by clicking the button below.

Thanks so much for taking the time to look at my web site! And please feel free to email me
if you have any questions... I would love to hear from you!
