Jo has lived in East Devon for over 30 years. She spent her early years in Australia and is aware that this is where her love of colour and light originates. Her father was an exceptionally talented watercolourist who exhibited both in Australia and in the UK. She grew up in a musical and artistic family but only came to painting after bringing up her family. She exhibits widely in the UK and is a member of The Chelsea Art Society. She paints in oils and acrylic. She is keen to explore and experiment in her quest to learn the 'language of art'. Her artistic development has been guided by various teachers including Robin Child. Many of her paintings sit between figurative and abstraction, colours and how they intereact with each other being so important. 'The painting grows with its own personality to meet the creative thought, else the result will be devoid of life' - a quote from Ivon Hitchens.
