About Jen and the Beartree

Jen and the Beartree

Illustrations, artworks and handmade things.

Hello and thank you for visiting my shop. My name is Jennifer and I love painting, drawing and making things out of wood and leather.

I am fascinated by the wonder of the natural world and find inspiration from walking in the countryside around my home. A walk with me is a bit frustrating because I am constantly stopping to gaze at something that has caught my attention whether a beautiful landscape, an interesting creature on a leaf or an unusual stone. I am also inspired by animals. I have a degree in zoology and have spent quite a few years working with horses and cattle. I am humbled by the intelligence of animals and what they can teach us. A lot of my wood and leather making skills have been gained from making yokes and harness for the two working oxen that I train on a nearby farm.

I try to be as environmentally friendly and sustainable as I can. My materials are carefully selected and locally sourced where possible. Everything is handmade by me and I take care to reduce waste material. Any paper, leather or wood scraps that are left over end up in the compost bin or on my woodpile that is home to lots of stag beetles.

I love to reclaim and reinvigorate unwanted things. All of the wood I use has had a previous life (this will be stated in the product description) or is windblown wood that has been collected (with permission) from woods near my home.

I use eco-friendly packaging and try to strike a balance between reducing packaging but ensuring that your item stays safe on the journey to its new home!

I live in Berkshire with my husband, a dog and a cat.

I donate a percentage of my income to charity in memory of our three-year-old son Wilfred who continues to be my main inspiration :)

Thank you and I hope you find something you like in my shop!

    I bought this lovely cat for my daughter for Christmas. It is gorgeous, and it is just the right size to carry around in a pocket... such a wonderful idea to create out of old wood.

    Thank you so much for our wonderful handmade leather dog leads - I have to say we couldn't be more pleased with them! Both are beautifully made and of a very high professional quality. I really do love my Kimberley Knotted one and my husband is very happy with his brass studded one.

    Thank you so much for sending them out so quickly and the care guide is really useful and informative. The dogs have taken to them straight away and look so grown up and smart when we are out on our walks. They are very comfortable to hold and are just the right length and weight. They also feel lovely and strong after the little puppy leads!

    I am so delighted with my purchase and would highly recommend them to anyone wanting an attractive sturdy dog lead made from quality leather, in a sustainable way.

    Many thanks from a very happy customer x
