About Jo

In my early forties I decided I wanted to learn to draw and went to Denmark and completed a course in classical drawing.
At the end my teacher told me "you can't draw but you're getting there" I took this as a great compliment but he warned me "don't go and do anything academic". I decided to try oil painting and was completely hooked and in my enthusiasm I did what I was told not to do and completed a three year course in classical realism in Italy.
Since 2011 I've been a full-time oil painter and have exhibited in a number of galleries in the UK.
I now understand what my teacher meant and I would be the first to say that technique is not everything. Falling in love with the oil paints themselves and learning to observe are far more important and it is these things that have helped me the most to improve my drawing!
