Process

Printed on archival quality parchment paper, giclée gives a vibrant and quality finish. Jo uses a treasure-trove of materials to create her artworks and applies a variety of techniques within her work from traditional printmaking and block-printing to hand collaging. Inspiration has been drawn from her extensive library of folk images, as well as observations of the people and events which surround her. While making, Jo allows her ideas to develop naturally, slowly building layers until satisfied with the story the work is telling. Once finished, the collage is then digitally scanned, ready to be printed.
