Jo is a multidisciplinary Artist, Set Designer and Photographer, her passion is fuelled by a love of chemistry, light and texture, allowing her to create and collaborate across a huge range of commissioned projects and work.
Her creative process and desire to add a certain sensibility through the repurpose of curious objects came from a magical relationship with her grandparents. Pillaging boxes of delights and memories sparked endless hours of daydreams and storytelling with a never ending value for the forgotten.
Jo went on to study illustration at Stockport College in Greater Manchester where she focused on photography as her expressive medium. The darkroom became a sanctuary where she experimented with various print techniques and in time discovered instant polaroid where a new found love affair of alchemy began. Deconstructing, distressing and splicing textured layers into the images became an immersive process that defined her final personal project in Manchester.
Jo then made the move to London, working as a photographic assistant within a bustling commercial community. The confirmation of her skillset was established when she became a studio production manager. This experience and knowledge within the commercial environment coupled with her inventive drive, allowed Jo to continue her creative development within set design and collaborative image making - offering clients the ability to deliver on their vision, whilst maintaining high quality productions.
