Over the years Jo has restored many items of furniture, including many traditional cane work items, always choosing to learn how to use traditional techniques and materials, alongside my trusty old Singer sewing machine!
As a Fine Artist Jo loves creating – whether this is planning and designing a painting, a print, a drawing, a page design, a book or leaflet. From creating concepts, observing and taking wildlife notes and recording, through to the final artwork, or restoring furniture! Its all makes up a wonderful daily mix of incorporating atwork, colour with hand made items, so there is never a quiet day!
Traditional restoration skills require time, skill and patience. By working with traditonal methods, it helps to keep these specialist skills in existence. Member of Heritage Crafts.
