I have always wanted to be an Illustrator ever since I was a little Girl; I loved my books such as the Old Bear books and Shirley Hughes and would stare at the Illustrations.
I grew up with many pets such as Cats, Dogs, Rabbits, Hamsters and Fish and I would draw them where they were asleep, (the only time they kept still) even the Cat on my business logo was modelled on my Cat Posy.
I studied at Bournville School of Art and Design, and then I went on to study a BA with honours in Illustration at Coventry University.
In 2008 with the help from The Princes Trust I set up Jenna Catton Illustrations, taking on commissions and selling my prints and greeting cards.
I also studied Teaching for post compulsory Education and I have taught students on a one to one basis, at College, Secondary Schools and Primary Schools. I have also worked as a Facilitator leading Arts and Crafts workshops at Shopping Centres and Charities, looking at local communities and their History.
