    Jo Taylor (Author)
    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. Her studio is a beautiful, creative oasis in amongst the chaos of weight lifting equipment, PC games, and far too many pairs of trainers.

    Jo considers herself lucky to live next to some beautiful countryside, the Sharpness Canal and the River Severn. All this nature around her influences her illustrations and gives her somewhere lovely to walk or run with 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.
