Jennifer Lilya grew up in Fairfield, Connecticut, where she spent countless hours sketching her Barbie dolls and still does to this day! Barbie, Fashion Plates and ’80s pop culture influenced her love of fashion and art, inspiring her to move to NYC to attend the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), where she majored in Fashion Illustration. She specializes in fashion illustration in acrylics and black ink on paper. Her combination of fashion art and witty hand-lettering gives her pieces a whimsical, modern edge. Jennifer has been illustrating professionally since 1993. Her love of runway sketching and her traditional, non-digital approach to illustration has garnered her numerous clients including ELLE, Katy Perry, Barneys NY, Dolce & Gabbana, Stila Cosmetics, WWD, Bloomingdale’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, dELiA*s, Edelman PR, Cosmopolitan, Express, Piperlime, Hanro, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Mood Fabrics, Dove and American Airlines among many other brands, fashion designers and publications.
