About Jo the Artist

I am a mixed media artist and sculptor based in Noosa Heads, Queensland. My life and art have been profoundly influenced by my upbringing and lengthy career in Speech Pathology. When I turned fifty, I decided to pursue my creative dreams.

My primarily figurative works aim to evoke emotions and create conversations about the journey of women in our current society. I want women to construct their own narrative and to be heard and empowered to follow their own path.

My large mixed media pieces use layering and symbols relating to self-actualisation and spirituality which are paramount to me. Hand built ceramic pieces are assembled with recycled and up-cycled items. Recent experiments have added slip dipped materials, encaustic and mixed media finishes. My current challenges are to go BIG with everything I produce.

I love entering art competitions and have also been in a number of art exhibitions. I am regularly involved in the very successful Noosa Open Studios arts trail. Solo exhibitions and teaching are beckoning me.

If you would like to visit my studio, feel free to call and arrange an appointment. I am very happy to discuss ideas and concepts with you for commissioned pieces as well. Examples of some commissioned work can be found here.

I truly believe that art has a way of connecting with people. There may be a piece that seems to touch on something inside you that triggers an emotion or memory. I love sharing my work, and if there is anything about my work you would like to discover more about, please don't hesitate to contact me. I am happy to share this with you.
