Ever since she can remember Jennifer has had a passion for wildlife and the natural world. When, some twenty years ago, she came across quarrymen working she was intrigued by the skill, rhythm and sound of their hammering, and her love affair with stone began. It seems only natural now that Jennifer combine the two, carving stone into the birds and animals that bring joy.

Jennifer lives in Lastingham, on the southern tip of the North York Moors National Park, and it is here from her workshop where most of her wildlife sightings happen. In response she raises her chisel to sculpt, in the hope of sharing the wonder and delight felt from seeing a hedgehog snuffle, a bird flit, or bee bumble.
