Visual Artist Jo Tunmer explores notions of time and reality through our fragments of memory. Her goal is to encourage those who see her work to look for the unexpected. They might discover text incorporated within a print, or be left intrigued by her use of blended colour which can leave the viewer wondering what lies beyond what is immediately visible.
Jo is captivated by process - either by the layering of oil paint on canvas or by ink and paper through printmaking. The print methods she works with are photopolymer etching, lithography combined with film and photography. Sometimes working with alternative materials - perspex, aluminum, and wood - adds further intrigue.

Alongside Jo's practice, she runs corporate or personal workshops and individual bespoke oil painting lessons. She also is known for creating and curating events for other Artists, for example she is one of the 3 founders of The Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale.
