Calligrapher, lettering artist and illustrator Jo lives and works in Devon. With a passion for making marks on paper since childhood Jo has worked with lettering for over 40 years. Beginning with calligraphy and drawing; adding colour to the drawings, then upsizing to sign writing, adding gilding, designing for other media including print, glass engraving, ceramics and textiles, now wood carving, incised letters and stone carving – all inter-related skills. A recent addition has been the restoration of lettering on an assortment of materials. Through classes and workshops Jo enjoys sharing her passion with students locally. Her unique IP is that she is both profoundly colour-blind and female, a rarity which presents challenges daily.
