Jo studied printmaking and photography at Art School in Otago, then film making and design at Wellington’s Victoria University. She established her studio in 1996 and became renowned for her ceramics, then later jewellery, which capture New Zealand’s coastal pastoral landforms and New Zealand’s indigenous flora and fauna. A single koru is "fossilised” on a ceramic tile. A cabbage tree, captured on film, preserved in resin and framed in silver – becomes a tiny piece of wearable art.

"Whether I am working in ceramics, glass, textiles, jewellery, photography, printmaking, or oil on canvas, one thing is ever present - Landscape. My medium may shift and evolve but my muse is constant. My art is like the environment it reflects – robust and fragile.”
