Jennifer Fryer is an illustrator and art educator based in Toronto.
Jennifer studied Illustration at OCADU (Toronto) and design at ESADSE (France). She earned a B.Des. in Illustration, as well as a taste for black coffee and pastries.
She has been teaching (kids & adults in art, watercolour, illustration, STEAM, and ceramics) as long as she has been freelancing and for her, education goes hand in hand with her practice. Exploring new ideas with a curious mind, learning from others, sharing knowledge, creating, and always trying new things are what keep her the happiest.
She loves podcasts, tea, and walking.
When she's not working, you can find her speed-walking with her noise-cancelling headphones on, spilling hot tea everywhere and bumping into everybody.
