After attending Boston Museum School (adjoining Boston Museum of Fine Arts) and then graduating from Reed College and Portland Museum School, both in Portland Oregon, Jerri-Jo Idarius began a part-time teaching vocation in 1969. Her teaching experience spans kindergarten through adult, public and private, Washington state, Arizona and northern California where she has been living since 1971.

Although her fine art major was in painting, her teaching focus has been the art of calligraphy and italic handwriting. In the early years she had several one person and collaborative shows of her calligraphy work. Since the late 1970s her focus has been in the field of publishing. This includes several map projects in conjunction with Great Circle Cartography, freelance graphics work for various organizations and artists. In the mid 1990s she became editor of Sojourn / Grace Millennium. Since 2000, she has done extensive work in web design and photography.
