Jo March

Jo March

'Artist Jo March was born in 1962 and brought up on a family farm in the small Cornish moorland village of Darite in South East Cornwall. In 1985, she graduated with first class honours in History from the University of Sheffield, and returned to the pull of Cornwall, beginning her career as a self taught professional artist.

Jo March's upbringing, living in the Cornish landscape and the people that she met, has been a strong influence on her choice of subject and the depiction of landscape in her paintings. Inspiration for Jo's paintings and limited edition prints is often drawn from the environment and the people of her childhood. She has abiding fascination with the eccentricities which exist just below the surface of rural life and in particular the characters that she observed in Cornwall whilst growing up.
Modern life is gradually and inexorably eroding age-old patterns of life and systems of belief. Jo March landscape paintings are an attempt to capture the essence of the bucolic farm land which has hitherto changed so little in Cornwall.

In addition to her skill as a landscape artist, Jo is also a very accomplished figure painter and her paintings of children are quite captivating. She has also displayed a unique talent for painting greyhounds and has been commissioned to paint Farloe Verdict, the winner of the English and Scottish Greyhound Derbys in 2003 and 2004 respectively.'
