Jo’s passions in life are summed up by simple words – family, friends, photography, glass, doodling, dogs, flowers, life and fizz. She has the perfect balance between creativity and love; mixed with endless amounts of fun and laughter. Vibrant colours, African flora, costume, textiles, sea and landscapes are all inspired by her experience of life, both in the everyday beauty of simple things like walking her beautiful labrador ‘Pepper’ on Saltburn beach – to her memories of a child in South Africa. Although her main passion is photography, she loves glass work and chose to do her BA Honors Degree in glass and ceramics. Jo’s workshops are not only professionally run, but creative, social and a lot of fun.
