Jo’s love of landscape and the natural world really came to the fore when studying fine art at the University of Leeds, formerly based in the grounds of Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Here she connected with the wild landscape of Yorkshire. Her work is devoted to rural themes and the minutiae of the smaller wildlife and flora that populate it. Now living in a small village in rural Kent her garden, planted to attract wildlife, is her main source of inspiration.
Jo has exhibited her work in galleries throughout the UK including the Rowley Gallery, Kensington, the Gold Gallery, Dundas Street, Edinburgh and Charleston House in Sussex and is fast establishing her reputation as an original and highly sensitive artist.
