Artist - Jo Gallagher

There is a playfulness in Jo's current body of work, what she likes to call "a fresh whimsical view on the ordinary".  If it creates a smile for the onlooker, perhaps even a connection or feeling of nostalgia - her job has been done.
She carefully researches her characters while the visual story she paints embrace real life personalities and create a link to yesteryear with a splash of humour. 
Like most artists, Jo paints what interests her. This leads to a broad array of subjects which provide a small window into another world. Her favourite part though, is the response and dialogue to her work.
