Jo was born on the Isle of Wight in 1969 and studied at Portsmouth College of Art and Design and Leeds Metropolitan University. She travelled widely during the 1990's being commissioned to produce work for a number of organisations. This culminated in television and radio exposure. A move to the United States in 1996 allowed her to continue her development and exhibit with galleries in Michigan.
As a landscape and seascape painter Jo's paintings capture the energy of nature. Despite her youth her work displays great maturity and she draws inspiration from the oil sketches of Whistler, and Constable. Working in oil she paints at a brisk pace with a palette knife, refining the detail with a fine brush.
Since returning to the UK in 2000 Jo has continued to exhibit in the United States, and has collected a number of commissions. Her work hangs in many private collections worldwide.
