Jo Parry

  • 5 stars across 23 books
    JO PARRY was born on the south coast of England in the early 1970s and spent her childhood in and around Dorset and the New Forest. As a child, she was inspired by books such as A A Milne's Winnie the Pooh and Robert Louis Stevenson's A Child's Garden of Verse. Jo Parry subsequently completed five years at Art College and is now a professional illustrator and artist. She describes her artwork as "fun, bold, colour-inspired and unpretentious" and usually works in soft pastels. Her hobbies outside the artistic field include photography, travel, sport and cooking.
