Brought up on a farm in Berkshire, Jo Grundy fell in love with nature and the English landscape from a young age, and it is easy to see where she finds her inspiration as an artist. She has always loved art and so trained as a graphic designer, working in this career for 14 years. She later took time out to have her two children, and this is when she was able to develop her painting style. Jo loves to add texture to her paintings, letting her paintings evolve organically. She uses a combination of mark making and mixed media such as stitching, paper and beads which breathe an element of fun into her paintings.
