Jo is a Christchurch born artist who enjoys painting predominantly in oils and watercolour. When painting with oils she enjoys the contrast of working between both traditional and contemporary styles and strives to evoke emotion with the use of texture and colour. Her most recent contemporary paintings have featured subtle texture and layers of rich, warm colours that project depth and emit cheerfulness and positivity. Her watercolour paintings are painted in a contemporary, vibrant style – most latterly of fruits and autumn leaves. She also enjoys drawing classically as well as contemporary life drawings. Jo is inspired by the people she encounters and the colours, shapes, textures and form found within the environment.
