About

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

In 2018 alongside running her art practice, she completed a Master’s Degree with Distinction in Fine Art Printmaking from Anglia Ruskin University. This period of study enabled her to experiment further with wood cut printmaking techniques and fine art installation.

Alongside her practice Jo is an Artist Facilitator at , teaches oil painting and printmaking privately, mentors students studying for GCSE and A level Art exams. She participates regularly on  art competition judging panels. Jo is the main panellist for The City Art Book series, founded by Emma Bennett.

Jo was also the founder of Cambridge Showcase, now no longer running and one of three founders of the Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale, also now no longer running due to financial constraints.

Commissioned work include many pieces for Cambridge, Beechdale Homes, Laragh Homes and more recently a print commission for the new Cambridge Building Society central offices.
