We spoke with Jo Lord who is exibiting as Crow and Apricot this year at PromArt.
Jo grew up in London, attending art school before moving up to the Lake District where she draws inspriation for her wodnerful artwork. She makes mixed media art, creating artwork through collages, drawing and painting, focusing on portraiture, illustration, weaving and curating. When talking about her artwork, Jo describes it as whimsical and fun yet bold and graphic, and we would have to agree! Looking through Jo’s website is a joy, her artwork seems to come to life on the page! Birds are a running theme throughout, appearing in paper collages and softer watercolour pieces. When she is not making art, Jo loves to spend her time with her family and playing music.
Jo draws her inspiration from Nature, using what she sees in the world around her to create her amazing artwork. It’s not only the subjects that have a natural feel in her artwork, but the process of how she creates it is full of natural elements and materials where possible. For example, Ink is often applied using a feather or the wrong end of a paintbrush.
“I don’t always know exactly how a picture will turn out until it’s done!”
Jo attended PromArt in May and is excited to be returning again with her daughter for the June and July PromArt events.
“I’m so looking forward to doing Prom Art again, and my 6yr old daughter is really excited to be my little helper on the stall.”
