Jessica Mai Learn more about me

Hi! I'm Jess! I am a professional artist and musician and I love supporting young artists in the arts! I am a digital illustrator, children's book author/artist, children's musician and media maker (look up "Penny Pom Pom") and I also love to paint with acrylics and watercolour.

My favourite colour is purple and I have a pet cat named Hero!
