After getting a BFA at Louisiana Tech University in 1977, Jo began painting full time. She did some time as an interior designer and as a decorative painter doing murals and plaster on walls. Now, Jo paints canvases large and small. She is an artist with a passion for creating unique and inspiring pieces. Her love for art began at a young age and has grown into a lifelong pursuit.
I draw inspiration from a variety of sources, including nature, music, and the people and places I encounter in my daily life as well as my travels. I particularly am drawn to the ocean and love to paint the colors of the sea. My goal is to create art that evokes emotion and tells a story.
My process is free flowing and spontaneous. I consider myself a color-field artist meaning my works have a predominant color. I am a firm believer in the power of experimentation and play in the artistic process. I often incorporate unconventional materials and techniques into my work, which allows me to explore new ideas and push the boundaries of my craft.
