Born in England into a creative family, Jennifer Copley-May has been passionate about all forms of art since early childhood. As an adult she studied botanic illustration and continued to develop her artistic talents in several other areas: portraiture, landscapes, animal portraits and more recently, abstracts, graphics and illustrative work.

She has also created large scale mosaic works for swimming pools and a series of back drops for a dance hall musical. Jennifer has always encouraged people of all ages who think they are not creative and has in the past run courses for children, beginners and accomplished artists, focusing on various aspects of the arts.
