Judging panel participation

I have recently been involved in several panels judging various art events. Two of my favourites have been the Cambridge Open Art, (an annual art event), and the Liverpool Art Book (image from the Cambridge Art Book is shown here).

Solo Show - Cambridge Contemporary Art

From 11 May - 2 June 2-19 I will be exhibiting at Cambridge Contemporary Art, Trinity St.

This is my first solo show at the Gallery so I am busy working on new canvasses and prints.

The exhibition is titled Cambridge to Coast.

I have always been interested in my personal dialogue with the landscape that surrounds the city where I live.

I grew up in London and while some may find a city lonely, I thrive on the anonymity and comparative privacy that they offer.

I have a utopian vision of the landscape around me, in particular the flatlands that start from Cambridge and finish at the edge of the East Anglia coast. In comparison to this romantic notion of the land that I portray in my oil paintings I produce prints from views of the city that often focus on a solitary figure.

The solo show at Cambridge Contemporary Art in May 2019 will showcase a new body of work that reflect this personal dialogue that I have with my surroundings.

Completion of MA Fine Art Printmaking

I finally completed my MA in Fine Art Printmaking in September 2018. I received notification in December that I had received a Distinction.

Working for my MA proved to be one of the most challenging times of my life but I am so glad I persevered.

Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale

I cannot believe how the Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale has developed since a doorstop conversation with fellow printmaker Anthony Hopkinson in 2013.


I am no longer part of the organising team, as I wanted to concentrate on my Masters in Printmaking but I will be showing some of my Cambridge Walkabout range of solarplate etchings that are exclusive to Cambridge Contemporary Art. Doors open at 10.30 on Friday 21 September and continues until Saturday 29 Saturday 2018. At the Pitt Building, opposite Fitzbillies.

MA exhibition

My final MA exhibition at The Cambridge School of Art showcased a new direction for me.

I have been working on installation and woodcut prints for the past eight months. Working in site-specific locations will be something I will be pursuing during the next year.

On the radio...

I was recently interviewed at Cambridge Contemporary Art by Daniel Baker.

Here is the link.

Jo Tunmer in the Cambridge Conversation

Jo Tunmer and has been a professional artist for 11 years. If you’re a regular at Kettle’s Yard you’ll also know her as being an Artist Facilitator and leader of workshops. Jo tells Daniel Baker about her journey.


Shed is the name for my final Masters in Fine Art Printmaking at Cambridge School of Art.

I have been studying for my MA for the past two years and I will be finishing at the end of September 2018.

Come along to the Preview on Thursday 6th September from 5-8 pm. The exhibition then continues until 13th September 2018. The Ruskin Gallery is at the back of the main building of Anglia Ruskin University, East Road, Cambridge.

Shed explores recycling, regeneration, the past, the present and the future, and pays architectural homage to this simple ubiquity of suburban living.

MA Printmaking

I am now in my final 2 months of my MA Printmaking studies at Cambridge School of Art.

My work is all about the garden shed.

If you would like to know more about my final project then please do come along to the Private Preview on 6 September. The show will then be up until 13th September.

RIP - Ryan Williams

Ryan Williams was a legend.

A fellow MA friend who inspired us all.

This week we say goodbye, but he will not be forgotten.

RIP mate.

Cambridge Walkabout etchings

My collection of etchings that are exclusive to Cambridge Contemporary Art in Trinity St, Cambridge are proving in demand. New colourways will be available during the next few months.
