Statement

Born and educated in Bristol, England, but now living and working in Pasadena, California, Jo creates abstract landscape paintings. 

Beginning with a base of canvas or birch block, she builds up layers of paper, fabric and found materials along with stitched detail to craft a surface on which to apply acrylic paints and glazing medium.

The result is a contemplative study of landscape, with references to the ocean, land and sky through vibrant colors and structural simplicity.

The layering of the materials lends the pieces a dense, tactile appearance with a latent archaic quality.

Jo’s work reflects the longing for balance, and the search for substance and simplicity; all common themes for people living in today’s society. The un-peopled landscapes evoke the desire for solitude and escape, and the need to return to nature.

Jo is a member of the Pasadena Society of Artists, and has work in private collections both in Britain and the United States.
