Designer/maker and a compulsive collector of ‘stuff’. Jo’s work consists of mixed media jewellery and small scale sculptural objects with the occasional accompanying screen print.
Her current work has been inspired by the worldwide plight of the bee population, and the pieces depict a dystopian future of modern consumerist ‘nature’ – imagining what the world might look like if bees were to stop collecting pollen and instead focus their attention on collecting shiny consumer goods. Other inspiration has been taken from science where radio transmitters have been used to track the navigational abilities of bumblebees resulting in intricate and colorful graphs as well as from simpler aspects such winged flight and the pattern of honeycomb. Jo enjoys using found objects, color and mixed media in her work.
