Jenny combined her lifelong interests in both art and science when she began keeping illustrated field journals in 1981. Since that time, sketching natural subjects from life has continued to inspire and inform her other illustration projects, which have centered around mammals, birds, and botanical subject matter. Her special interests include studies of skeletal anatomy and describing movement through animated sequences. In 1992, Dolphin Days (W. W. Norton),for which she was the sole illustrator, won the John Burroughs Award for best book of the year in natural history.
