I have a love of art, colour, fabric and textiles and wanted to combine everything. I use the fabric as my media and the sewing machine to sketch detail. I draw inspiration from every day and a little imagination!
Jo calls herself a fabric illustrator. She has a degree in fashion design and 10 years’ experience in the fashion industry as a designer of womenswear.
When Jo, her husband and children moved to Canterbury from London she needed some creative output so she began making hand embroidery applique pictures, customised cushion covers for weddings and doing upholstery for friends.
