Jo is a visual artist who explores 'environmental aesthetics'. Her early connection with her surrounding landscape helped shape Jo's sense of place and identity. It is this sense of place that Jo explores with her artwork using a variety of mediums.

Jo has a trilateral components to her practice. The use of Solarplate™ printmaking is used in response to her urban surroundings, often focusing on a transitory solitary figure. In comparison, the use of oil paint is employed to express a romantic, utopian notion of the land, devoid of modernity and people. The third element pulls the other two together and consists of sculptural, architectural forms which are more conceptual in nature.

Jo has been a self-employed Visual Artist since the millennium and completed her studies with an MA in Printmaking with Distinction from the Cambridge School of Art (2018).

Alongside her practice Jo is an Artist Facilitator at Kettle's Yard, a private arts educator and the lead panellist for The City Art Book Series.


From October 2019 until April 2020 Jo has been awarded a place on the AA2A residency program. She is working with Visual Artist Cathy Faithfull on a contemporary art collaboration (eARTh) investigating our human relationship with the changing landscape.

Jo's focus for this collaboration is 'tree whispering'. Recent studies have found that trees are sustained by complex chemical conversations that occur underground. If one tree is attacked others are warned. This body of artwork focuses on this symbiotic relationship between trees as the metaphorical forest comes under attack from human deforestation.

Go to eARTh for further information.

Jo has an enhanced DBS check (June 2019).
