A self-taught artist, Jo was brought up in her parents’ cottage and on a family farm in the small moorland village of Darite in South East Cornwall. In 1985, she graduated with first class honours in History from the University of Sheffield and returned to the pull of countryside and began to paint.
Jo’s upbringing in The West Country has been a strong influence on her choice of subject and the depiction of landscape. Inspiration for her paintings is often drawn from the environment and the people of her childhood. She has an abiding fascination with the eccentricities and traditions which exist just below the surface of rural living and are rapidly being eroded by modern life
