Jess has been an illustrator since 2002. Her favourite place is her tiny home where she lives with her tiny dog. It is there that she loves to draw and create funny characters with bright colours and fancy patterns. There is nowhere else she'd rather be (except a car boot sale or a charity shop maybe).

Jess likes to use a mix of all sorts of stuff in her work. She draws, she scans, she scribbles and blobs, she prints and stamps and she even uses a scary computer. The aim of her work is to make people smile and she hopes that she does just that.

Jess's has worked with a number of publishers including Bloomsbury with the FLORENTINE AND PIG series and Usborne who publish PENNY DREADFUL

Upcoming Publication:

NAT'S NAUGHTY NITS (9th February 2017, Orchard)

There are nits in the treetops, Nits in the town, Nits on the toilet with their pants pulled down!"

When some scritchy-scratchy nits climb on to Nat's head, they get up to all sorts of naughty things... This hilarious tale of getting nits (and getting rid of them) is guaranteed to give children the giggles.

With bouncy, rhyming text from Giles Andreae, author of the bestselling Giraffes Can't Dance,and wonderfully wacky illustrations from rising talent, Jess Mikhail, this book will appeal to any child (young or old!) who's ever wondered exactly what nits get up to...
