Brief Biography


Jo is a painter based in Cornwall UK.

Taught at A ‘level’ by Newlyn School artist Vincent Wilson, her work has self developed since.

Predominantly figurative, she explains “ The wonderful thing about people is that there is no such thing as an 'ordinary' person...everyone is extraordinary in their own way”. 

Jo’s paintings are intimate studies, she enjoys quirky detail of everyday folk, and celebrities that she admires.. Always in oil and with fairly broad brush strokes, they are expressive, contemporary portraits. Twice featured in Sky Art Portrait Artist of the Year, with one of her images ( not pretty but pretty honest) being selected to appear repeatedly in a huge installation depicting The Mona Lisa on Clapham Common, London following series one, and with actor Parminder Nagra choosing her portrait to take home with her in series 3.

Jo has exhibited extensively in the Southwest both with solo exhibitions and as part of collectives.

As well as producing work to sell through galleries, she also regularly undertakes private commissions, and is always very pleased to discuss requests and ideas.

Our platform provides carefully curated access to artworks selected by art experts, guaranteeing a selection of the highest quality.

Our Mission and Actions

At THE ART HUB, our mission is initially focused on addressing a profound imbalance within the art world, specifically catering to women artists. In the current landscape, a mere 5% to 15% of artworks traded at auctions are created by women, starkly contrasted by the overwhelming 85% to 95% of works by male artists. This disparity is not only confined to auctions but is also prevalent in exhibitions, where male-created art significantly overshadows that of their female counterparts.

By concentrating our efforts on female artists, THE ART HUB aims to counteract this imbalance and champion women within the art community. This initiative is designed to amplify the visibility of women artists, making their creations more accessible to a wider audience, and ultimately striving for a more balanced representation of genders within art auctions and exhibitions. By prioritizing women in art, our platform boldly advocates for equality and diversity within the art sector, signaling a commitment to reshaping and enriching the cultural landscape.
