About the Illustrator

Jo Kearney is a life-long art and science hobbyist. She has a B.A. in Early Childhood Education, and discovered Amelia as a way to combine her love for art, science, and helping children learn. She has a passion for space and exploration that give Amelia her tenacity, and a fierce desire to learn that means Amelia’s adventures always have something fascinating to impart.

She lives with her husband, Steve, and their cat, Rocket. One of whom is very supportive, while the other would prefer to swat at Jo’s pens as they’re moving across the paper.
