Jo Holdaway

Jo Holdaway is an accomplished digital illustrator who creates dynamic snapshots of everyday life in bold, vibrant colour. 

Growing up in Weston-super-Mare in the 80’s she has fond memories of a very ‘outdoor’ childhood with many family holidays spent in Cornwall, Devon and Wales. Camping, coastlines and canines featured heavily in her upbringing and has had a big influence on her lifestyle and creative work ever since!

In 2000 she graduated from Falmouth University with a degree in Graphic Communication and went on to work in TV branding in London before returning to the West Country. In Bristol she started to create digital illustrations from old family photos, printing the artwork onto canvas and also reproducing them as bold acrylic painted pieces, often on wood. 

With her design background, colour and composition has always been integral to her work as she strives to make work that raises a smile. She has had work published in New York’s 3×3 Illustration annual, The Holland Times, The Ride cycling journal, KLM Inflight magazine. She currently lives in Taunton with her partner and two terriers.
