About the Artist
Jo has always loved drawing, but did not work with it consistently until the early 90's. It began then as so many things do, with a simple watercolor class one morning a week at an old school building. It grew quickly from there to learning a real love for the medium of watercolor. Since that first watercolor class, Jo has worked with watercolor, taken numerous workshops internationally in France, Holland, and Bermuda, as well as all over the Eastern United States. She has taken drawing & painting classes at Anne Arundel Community College, The Maryland Hall School of Arts, The Casements in Florida, and various other institutions.
Jo has been juried into art shows, and won awards for her art in the Annapolis/ Washington DC area. She has studied with well known watercolor artists, Skip (William) B Lawrence, Terry Madden, Janet Rogers, Carolyn Gawarecki, Joe Mayer, Tony Couch, and many others through the years.
She currently donates a portion of her sales to help various animal charities and shelters, and works with one group in particular, Art 4 Critters , in which she is now a co-leader. Each year she donates some paintings and artwork to animal groups to sell during fundraisers.She is currently a member of the Art League of Daytona Beach and she continues to paint every day, and loves it.
