My Bio

Hello friends!

My name is Jojo and I'm a self taught Illustrator, Artist and Graphic designer. I began my art journey back in highschool in the 1990s, and since then have found most of my passion lies within the use of colour, lines and experimentation both digitally, traditionally and a combination of the two.

I've been spending the last 17 years building my personal skills through self motivated learning, watching countless videos on multiple skill sets, and helping others to achieve skills they required to press on in their own creative journey.


I've had the pleasure of working with companies such as Roadtech Marine, Green Cyc productions, and The Gut Hustle featuring Logo designs, catalogue design, advertisement campaigns and other helpful design concepts.


I was also given the opportunity to design tattoos for friends and their friends. I'm always up for trying different media, if requested, or if I find something interesting in its application.


But ultimately, art is in my soul. It is a joy that is forever with me, whether in the doodlings on a page or a thoughtful thoroughly finished project. Art is my home.



Current Residence: Melbourne Australia

What makes me happy: World of Warcraft. My kids. life.

Favourite Band/Singer: Muse, Katy Perry + more.

Favourite TV Show: Game of Thrones

Sorry to all who have sent messages and replies and gotten nothing in return. I have been pretty nauseous through this pregnancy, and had some personal things to deal with as well as moving house! So it's been one hell of a roller coaster ride. And the horrible news about Paris :( tragic! In more positive news, I recently saw The Martian. Oh Em Gee... Loved it like crazy! And next weekend I'm heading off to see Hunger Games Mockingjay Pt 2. HellzYeeeeah! (Ps. If you have a lover/hubby/wife/partner/etc and have had tension... go on date nights. I am so glad I've reinstated this, because before that we were fighting so much. DATE NIGHT! WOOT!
