Jo Taylor is a self-taught illustrator, and has worked in the industry for well over 10 years.
She lives in Gloucestershire with her computer-obsessed son, her sports coach daughter and their shaggy French sheepdog, Blue.
All her illustrations start off created by hand, using pencils, pens and a splash of paint. Then she mixes them all up in her PC, where she adds lots of colour and texture to create fresh, bright, colourful designs.
Recent happy clients include: Buster Books, Macmillan, Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, BBC, Nelson Thornes Scholastic, Pearson, and Harper Collins.
