Hello, I'm Jo!
I’m a Surface Pattern Designer from Hampshire, U.K. but before that I was a librarian from North London and in between, I used to live in New Zealand, where I completed my degree in illustration. What I learned from that degree, is that I am not a traditional illustrator, hence why I became a librarian!
ONE PATTERN, 3 YEARS IN THE MAKING!
Back in May 2017, I painted some chickens as part of my '100 Days of Blue Project', they were very stylised and used a limited colour palette made up of blue, red, yellow and black. I find painting a great way to relax and quite often a good starting point to develop my ideas for new work but little did I know that these feathered characters would be revived twice over the coming years and show me just how much my illustration skills have grown in that time.
