Jo produces absolutely stunning work that just sings with colour and movement, capturing a fascinating process that combines intuitive gestures, digital editing, and labour-intensive weaving.

In this episode we get stuck into her process and discuss:

  • sources of inspiration
  • generating and exploring ideas
  • working with visual stimuli
  • the importance of selection in order to keep moving forward

We also have a frank conversation about why she isn’t a business that I found refreshing and inspiring. There’s loads of fascinating insight in this episode, so tune your ears!
