Jill Howarth

Biography

Born in a tiny town in the hills of Pennsylvania, Jill Howarth always wanted to be an artist. She graduated from Penn State University with a degree in graphic design and entered the corporate design world. As a senior designer and then art director at Hasbro Toys, she occasionally embellished product packaging with fun little drawings. More requests for these illustrations came her way and before she knew it, she was doing more drawing and less layout design. After leaving corporate life to start a family, she began freelancing, pursuing her passion for hand lettering and illustrating for the children’s market with clients such as American Greetings, Hallmark, Klutz, Penguin, Pottery Barn Teen, Scholastic, and more. Presently, she lives just west of Boston.
