'I am originally from Nottingham where I spent a happy childhood growing up in a country village on the outskirts of Nottingham. From an early age, I had a keen interest in the arts, and I spent my secondary school years training to be a dancer, by earning a place at a stage school in Surrey where I became a boarder. However, my career as a dancer was not meant to be as my love for painting became my number one passion. I decided to hang up my ballet shoes when I was 16, and focus on my journey to become an artist. After completing art college in Nottingham, I then moved to London where I began to forge my career as an artist.
More from Jo Starkey
Although I went to art college, I am mainly self taught, and have learnt my skills as an artist by experimenting with different materials and harnessing new techniques, which have evolved over the course of time. I try and depict the essence of nature and its magic into my paintings, which are created using mixed media on silk, which is mounted on board. I use the silk as a canvas and build up layers using lots of different materials, which give it a three dimensional effect. This layering process really lends itself to the scenery that I paint creating a feeling of depth and texture.
I like to play with colour and sometimes this will dictate the composition of a painting. I always have my camera to hand which allows me to capture a beautiful scene as and when it happens, and I am never short of inspiration as I am surrounded by the beauty of nature, which is in abundance where I now live in Sussex. I generally work from photographs that I have taken, and enjoy putting my own interpretation on a natural scene, to give it a more contemporary look.
I work from my studio at the Turner-Dumbrell Workshops in Ditchling, East Sussex'
Beautiful picture that I would recommend buying as the framed version due to the quality of the mount. It was bought in conjunction with two others by the same artist and we are equally delighted with all three.
