Jo Starkey

.........Shimmering florals and landscapes

Jo’s two passions are art and nature – both nurtured while growing up in an artistic family in the countryside. Initially she planned to be a dancer but her passion for art took hold and she decided to go to art college instead. After a spell in London while her career got going, she moved back down to the country and became a professional artist, specialising in landscape and floral art.

Her technique is interesting and it works particularly well with meadow scenes. She applies silk to the canvas and then gives it a batik effect to create a sense of the undergrowth. The silk paints she uses give a lovely translusence while the acrylics give bold accents to the flowers and add texture. Gold is often applied to the wild grasses.

Jo has been a professional artist for over ten years and has a studio in Ditchling, East Sussex.
