ARTIST STATEMENT

Jo lives at Yew Tree Farm, Coniston with her husband, where they farm Herdwick sheep and Belted Galloway cows. Jo is a professional artist, who specialises in animal paintings, much like Beatrix Potter, Yew Tree's previous owner. She works in a loose style with charcoal and watercolour, often using her own animals as subjects. She works from photos and from life, taking great pleasure in identifying and capturing the essence of an animal's personality and character.
