Jo graduated with a distinction from the MA in Children’s Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art in 2014. Her first picture book How To Be a Dog, was published by Scholastic in 2015, and was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal and the inaugural Klaus Flugge Prize.
Jo has also published Messy Molly (Scholastic 2016) and illustrated Petunia Paris’s Parrot (text by Katie Hawworth, Templar 2016). Her third book as author-illustrator, Cat in a Box, was published in July 2017, followed by What’s for Lunch Papa Penguin? in September 2018, both published by Scholastic.
Jo is always looking to experiment with and improve her illustrations, and has lately been developing her black and white line work, as well as full colour in mixed media.
Jo is available for black and white line work and young fiction.
