Jo Taylor

Visual Artist

I have had a life-long love affair with art. As a child my favourite past-time was to draw and create and that has been a constant in my life. I am increasingly devoting more time to my art now that family have grown and work commitments have lessened. Through on-going participation in workshops, classes, demonstrations and gallery visits I am honing my skills and growing as an artist. I happily paint in most mediums including watercolour, acrylic, oil and pastel. I am inspired by many things and am never at a loss for subject matter. There are so many beautiful sights in this world I will never get around to painting them all but I will keep trying and thoroughly enjoy the journey along the way!

My work can be seen digitally on Gallery 247, Instagram (jotaylor3699) and Bluethumb
