Hi, I’m Jo Berry.

I am a 2019 graduate of MA Children’s Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art and have recently exhibited my picture books at our London and Cambridge graduation shows, Bologna Children’s Book Fair, and Litteralund in Sweden.

I am fascinated by every day interactions between people and how we show empathy towards one another. I love to use print, drawing and digital collage to combine elements of reality with imagination.

I also enjoy creating worlds that can be explored through images, particularly natural environments. I am most motivated by narratives that inspire curiosity in the reader with layers of poetry.
