Jo was born in Bristol, but has lived in Surrey for over thirty years. She gained a B.A. Hon in Fine Art at Farnham College University and has exhibited widely in Galleries around south England.
Jo paints in order to portray the essence of the land - always concentrating on the elemental power of light, atmosphere and the mood of an area, rather than a figurative representation of it, and celebrating the sublime beauty of light itself.
Although she intends a specific reading for each painting, Jo aims to purposefully make the works none prescriptive, allowing the viewer to interpret each work in their own way. Everyone seeing something different.”
