About the Artist…
Although she’s had the desire to paint since childhood, Jo didn’t realize her dream until 2003, when her husband surprised her with easel and paints.
From then on, Jo has found her inspiration in the beauty of nature, landscapes, and interesting architecture.
Jo’s work consists mostly of acrylics on canvas, pencil & charcoal on paper. Works bring forth the color and beauty of nature, landscapes, and interesting architecture. Paintings have shown at galleries, the NC State Fair Art Competition, art shows at her church and at Cary and Raleigh-area coffee houses.
Her business, Outside the Lines Art Instruction and Sales, provides one-on-one art mentoring for budding artists 5 yrs to 85 at her studio or the student’s home tailored to needs/desires of student. She also conducts art workshops for students in pencil, charcoal, pastels, acrylic paint, tempera, and air dry clay at Neighborhood Academy of Music, Clayton. She is also available for art birthday parties and commissions for pet portraits
Her community service of an art nature has involved creation and delivery of a 6-week after school art program for K to Grade 2 disadvantaged and at-risk children at Magnet school in downtown Raleigh. The program consisted of teaching art skills while encouraging students to explore their creativity. The focus was also on building good character.
Jo’s art is currently on display at the Royal Bean Coffee Shop on Hillsborough Street in Raleigh and The Garden Gate Café on Aversboro Road in Garner.
