About Jo
I grew up in Norfolk and live in Leicestershire in the UK. I studied illustration and graphic design and graduated from Loughborough College of Art. I worked as a designer and illustrator for design agencies in London, Nottingham and Leicestershire but after taking time out for a year to travel the world I decided to try my hand at full time freelance illustration and have been lucky enough to be illustrating ever since! I have been represented by 
London agent NB Illustration since 2000.
I am a co-director for Off The Shelf, a midlands based creative agency working with designers and film makers, creating websites, graphic design, film, social media short videos as well as continuing with my illustration. I have a family with 3 children and enjoy a busy life!
Over the years I have enjoyed a vast range of projects from children’s books, editorial design, educational publications to book jackets, advertising and packaging.
