Jo is based at the famous Yew Tree Farm in Coniston where she is surrounded by constant inspiration for my drawings and paintings! Yew Tree Farm was once owned by Beatrix Potter, and she loves the idea that she is following in her footsteps, specialising in the character of our domestic and wild Cumbrian animals.
As well as keeping busy with her artwork, she helps her partner, Jon Watson, to manage the Herdwick sheep and Belted Galloway cows that graze the 700 acres of Yew Tree Farm.
Jo has worked in animal management and once had a mobile farm, where she used to take a variety of her farm animals to visit local schools and teach the children about the animals.
Her love of the countryside and her farm animals shines through in her work and she also takes commissions. Please enquire.
