Teresa Jenellen – Designer

I am an illustrator specialising in watercolour with a love of colourful characters and gloom.


I work from home in Machynlleth the Ancient Capital of Wales, right next to the oldest graveyard in town, in a crumbling house with my black cat, black chickens, heavy metal husband... and a ginger pom named Foxy!

I am a genuine bookworm and history nerd. I love getting my teeth into a good story and bringing the characters to life and I'm always happy to go the extra mile to get every detail right. I have worked on all sorts of projects from book covers and full story illustrations to theatre and festival posters. I have experienced easy breezy several months notice covers and 'any chance you can' super fast turnarounds. No job is too big or too small and every challenge is approached with equal enthusiasm. I am easygoing, upbeat and I work well with others.

Teresa continues to have the artistic genius that keeps me coming back for more. Her style is so gorgeous that readers pick up my book because of the cover. When they ask about the cover art, they are always amazed by Teresa's portfolio. Not only is Teresa a brilliant artist, but she is also an incredible human being whom I look forward to collaborating with on my next novel.

Working with Teresa was an absolute pleasure! Upon seeing her portfolio, I knew she was the right artist to design the cover for my book; what she delivered went beyond my expectations. She was able to translate my ideas into a cohesive, coherent concept and translate it beautifully onto the page. Beyond her artistic talents, communication was easy and clear, and pricing was very fair. I would ...

Teresa is an artistic genius and am incredible human being. She stands out from other cover artists, because it's easy to see that she genuinely cares for the book and the author's vision. This is the third cover she's done for me, and I must say it tops the charts! Teresa goes above and beyond to create gorgeous artwork! I am so excited to work with Teresa again!!!❤️
