The sacred Kingfisher.

This series of work use our native birds as both subject and object. They have been given a character and a starring role in Jo's painting in order to voice her interest in the idiosyncratic and distinctive world we live in.

This collection allows Jo to explore the fun there is to be had with language, symbolism and entrenched beliefs in a quirky, humourous way.
