About & Contact

Hi, I'm Jess!

I'm the founder of Jess Was Here - obviously.
I embarked on this creative journey in late 2020 while pursuing a Master of Children's Book Illustration. The idea behind this brand blossomed as an opportunity for me to dive deep into my passions and interests as an artist.

Throughout the years - and an insane number of raccoon drawings -  I stumbled upon my true calling. For me, it's all about finding my community and sharing what matters - a love for creativity, silliness, and self-expression.

Jess Was Here is a space where cuteness meets fashion, and where we can celebrate the joy of being unapologetically ourselves.

Thank you for joining me on this adventure!

What really gets us excited? Being part of vibrant markets and conventions!

Keep an eye out for us at comic conventions and illustration events across the United Kingdom (and elsewhere!). It's your chance to immerse yourself in all things cute and have a chat with us – both me and my raccoon cutouts 👀

We can't wait to meet you in person!

Here are the coming events:

LONDON MCM COMIC CON - October 27-29

THOUGHT BUBBLE (Harrogate) - November 11-12


CRAFTY CUB MARKET (London) - December 10

CRAFTY FOX MARKET (London) - December 17
