I'm available! I'd love to hear about your project.
Jo left art school in the early 90’s after five years of study, specialising in illustration and design. She is lucky enough to have been a full time illustrator ever since working primarily in the areas of magazine editorial and print initially, then later children’s books and greetings cards. Her work has expanded into areas such as fine art prints, games and puzzles, social stationary and calendars, as well as giftware, homewares and several aspects of design such as logos, business stationary and print publications. In 2016 she had her first self-penned children’s book published, Sleep Little Pup, working with Collaborate, an area she wishes to move into further in 2017. She has written a further six books which will be ready for Advocate to appraise in the near future. When she‘s not busy illustrating for her agents, she is also an art teacher for children and a private art tutor, and has developed two ranges of tourist giftware for her local area which has hit the shelves this year and is selling well! Jo feels very blessed to have such an exciting career, one she wishes to continue for years to come. “The ideas keep coming!” Spending the day being creative and also having the chance to pass on those skills to the next generation is a privilege and an honour, says Jo. Outside of creative pursuits she is a keen runner and swimmer. Other interests include cooking and nutrition, reading (especially art history), antiques and collectables with an emphasis on anything related to the Arts & Crafts movement and attending sport and other cultural eventsView Full Bio
