JO ULLAH - ARTIST & AUTHOR

My writing, artwork and ideas

Self taught artist, dyslexic and addicted to creating. When I'm working on a piece of artwork I'm often writing a story in my head. When I write I can 'see' the narrative like a film.

BIO

I grew up in a quiet rural location in the border lands between Somerset and Dorset with plenty of time for dreaming. Unable to read books because of dyslexia my mother read to me until I was ten. She had a strong taste for horror and mystery, with a naturally spooky mind excited by all things supernatural. These things I gladly inherited and transfer into my writing and sometimes my artwork too.

 

JO ULLAH

The Locksmith is my first novel, Sweet Dreams is my second, and I'm busy working on a third. I entered The Locksmith into the Kindle Scout competition and it won! Consequently, the ebook is now published by Kindle Press. Sweet Dreams won a Premier Readers' award - 

Stories have filled my head and spill over into my dreams, waiting to be worked out on paper. I have a BA Hons English Literature and Language degree & work as an Academic Mentor. I'm married, have four children, too many pets, and live in Bristol in a dusty cluttered house.

ARTWORK PAST & PRESENT

I am a mixed media artist dabbling in a range of materials. It just depends on the idea at the time. Red plastic clay, white crank, glazed or painted, bronze or cold cast resin, oils and acrylics, tapestry, mini mosaic and hand-built sculpt clay figures.
