Jennifer Cossins is a Tasmanian artist and writer best known for her book 101 Collective Nouns, which made headlines in 2018 after the Oscar-winning actress Anne Hathaway sparked an international search for the Tasmanian author on TV’s The Ellen Show.
Tasmanian born and bred, Cossins has her own store, Red Parka, which has become an institution for contemporary and original art and design in Hobart. She creates original art prints, children’s books, cards and homewares, which she sells in her store alongside work by many other independent artists from Tasmania, Australia and beyond.
Cossins has a passion for the animal kingdom, creative lifestyles, travelling, coffee and all things bright and colourful. Her work endeavours to make people smile, laugh and teach them something new, while encouraging and fostering love and care for the natural world.
