My name is Jo and I'm an illustrator, printmaker and proprietor of this small shop.

I started making cards after I had my baby. I realised there were so many people willing to help me, people who were excited for me and wonderful, strong people who I could turn to for support. I was overwhelmed with the love and generosity I was shown and I realised I had to step up and put my gratitude out in to the world. 

Sending a card is the most lovely token of affection I have found. I send cards all the time now: to say Thank You, Happy Birthday or just to let people know I'm thinking of them. From this habit my little card shop has grown and it makes me very happy to know that my designs are helping people to stay in touch and show love and gratitude all over the world.

If you have a shop and are interested in stocking my cards please email hello@jowaterhouse.com for my wholesale order form.
