Profile

Jo trained as a graphic designer and illustrator and works in Hampshire. Since technology has dominated the creative process of design, she is relishing the freedom and opportunity to ‘get her hands dirty’ again with the return to painting.

Attracted to natural subjects, she finds inspiration in organic shapes. Her work is about experiencing a subject as something unexpected often reveals itself in the process of exploring. Currently she is abstracting subject matter from landscapes, seascapes, natural objects and figures. Working in acrylic, oils and mixed media – with drawing at the core.

Exhibitions include: The Gallery in Cork Street, London; The Affordable Art Fair, Bristol; Brighton Art Fair; The Mall Galleries, London; The Wykeham Gallery, Stockbridge; The Flint Gallery, Blakeney; Nadia Waterfield Fine Art, Stockbridge; The St Ives Society of Artists, Cornwall and The Padstow Gallery, Cornwall.
