Exhibiting regularly and widely throughout the country and internationally, Jo's work is highly regarded, with pieces in the Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A), Arts Council England (ACE) East Midland Collections and Zeiss, Munich. Her residencies include a year at the Florence Trust Studios in London and she is currently Artist in Residence at Lakeside Arts Centre, Nottingham University (November 2013 – August 2014).
Jo's public art commissions have involved work for Millfield Sculpture Commission, Derbyshire Moorlands and Sheffield Galleries and Museums Trust. Recent commissions include a series of light work interventions, the most recent of which is ’Brain Container’ in Blackpool funded by Arts Council England and Blackpool Councils’ Arts and Engagement Team supported by Lightworks’ Illuminations. 'Fluted Pylons 2012', which was inspired by the 1930s Illumination Archives, was commissioned for Blackpool Illuminations Centenary by Arts Council England.
In 2005 Jo completed work at Loughborough University as an Advanced Research Fellow, research which significantly developed her interest in drawing digitally to create light drawings through the application of laser technology, computer software, material exploration and light, culminating in a series of exhibitions and publications. Since then, Jo has been continuing to develop and explore her understanding of technological processes in order to push the boundaries and possibilities in the design and production of digital artwork, light pieces and animation for exhibition and for public art commissions’.
She continues to research and develop new ways to create customised sculptural light drawing samples for interior and exterior locations, through the use of digital technologies, high-end lighting devices and different fabrication techniques.
Over the last six years Jo has developed and contributed to a number of art and science collaborations funded by Arts Council England and the Wellcome Trust, including ‘ Hijacking Natural Systems’. She also contributed to an ESPRC-funded project at Loughborough University called ”Bridging the Gaps” where she worked across different university departments to showcase how artists can collaborate with different specialist departments, in this case Chemistry, Engineering and Fine Art Printmaking.
