Jo was born in England, grew up in Ontario and currently lives in Winnipeg. She graduated with a BA in Fine Arts from University of Waterloo, one year being completed at the University of Manitoba.
Jo enjoys working with many media from pencil and paper to cast metals. Jo finds inspiration for cartoons, paintings and drawings from all around her. Plants and people to snatches of overheard conversations as well as her own flights of ideas, are all fodder for exploitation. Often humour is incorporated in the small details of a piece and Jo likes it when others see the joke, but she really draws and paints for her own amusement
Jo is a member of the Charlewood Art Group, the Manitoba Society of Artists and a former member of the Medea Artists Cooperative and her work can be found in private collections in Canada, United States and England.
Jo has participated in group shows with the CAG, the MSA and the Medea Gallery. Solo shows at the Medea Gallery, the Plasma Collection Centre at Cangene, Bread and Circuses and Frenchway restaurants.
