Jo Blaker is an artist & illustrator, based on the edge of the West Yorkshire moors. 


Drawing is at the heart of Jo's practice, which continues to evolve producing a varied body of work taking landscape, architecture, natural forms & the human body variously as subject matter. 


Sketchbooks provide the ideal form of expression through which much of Jo's work is realised. Her sketchbooks record the passing seasons both internal & external & allow Jo a place to immerse herself in the occupation of drawing from observation, frequently in outdoor locations.  


Jo’s formal art/design education encompassed photography, drawing, print-making, typography & illustration, on cross-disciplinary courses culminating in MA Visual Communication at the Royal College of Art (2009 - 2011). 


Jo shares her passion for drawing through her work as a freelance artist educator, as well as running her own workshops.  Regular clients include The Hepworth Wakefield & Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
