Vibrant and creative, her artwork features mainly watercolor & ink, welcoming viewers to connect deeply with hope and offers a different perspective into the world around them, one where anything is possible.
“I think sometimes we make things too complicated. Children have such great imagination and are amazed with the world around them. They find enjoyment in the simple things - Things that get overlooked by us."
"It’s what we love about children and what many wish they could return to. Imagination and simplicity are foundational for living in freedom and open the door to infinite possibilities.”
Jo's First Book
In 2020, Jo published her first book, My Journey to Prosperity: Living in the Kingdom, making it her first literary work available on Amazon.
“It started with just journaling about the events that was happening in my life at the time. How God lead me every step of the way in buying my car, the accident and the transformation I was experiencing at my job. The strange thing was, I was writing the book as if I was looking back on the events years later but at the time, the story hadn’t met its conclusion. I would piece together the details as they happened and wrote it as if I knew there would be a positive outcome. I don’t know if that’s ever been done before.”
In 2013, Jo was invited to be a guest on a radio show interviewing her about her art business and her photography was featured in Cairn Magazine and in the University’s mural celebrating their centennial milestone. As a former member of Christians in the Visual Arts (CIVA), Jo presented her work at the 2015 conference, Between Two Worlds, at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
In 2019, her work won first place at the Tinicum Arts Festival in Bucks County, PA and was featured in a solo exhibit at White Stone Gallery, formerly in the Frankford Arts Corridor of Philadelphia, making it a milestone for her career. In 2020, she hosted her first conference, ARISE, utilizing her art as an interactive tool, developing her unique style and teaching foundational principles for victorious living.
