In 2016, Jo realised her dream and made the leap from in-house Studio Designer with a greetings card company to ‘go it alone’ and become freelance. After more than a decade of experience working in various in-house roles, as a Studio Manager for a Giftwrap company, a Greetings Card Design Manager, and as a Designer, Jo decided it was time for a change and she hasn’t looked back!
With a Degree in Textiles and Fashion, specialising in Surface Decoration,and inspired by textiles old and new, lace, art, jewellery, fashion and interiors, Jo also brings her love for pattern, surface markings and delicacy to her art. She combines this enthusiasm for pattern with her passion for colour; she loves to experiment, mixing things up to lend an extra dimension of interest to her work.
When not holding a pen of some description, she swaps it for two dog leads and takes her two Golden Retrievers out for fresh air and long walks.
