Artist: Jo March
Jo March was born in Cornwall in 1962. She studied English and European Studies at the University of Sheffield, gaining a BA(Hons).
Jo March moved back to Cornwall in 1986 and slowly began to teach herself to paint. Her paintings and art prints are remarkably individual in outlook and style, drawing inspiration from the surrounding countryside and the people that she met whilst accompanying her parents on their daily rounds. Her Father was a farmer and her Mother a district nurse who lived in the small moorland village of Darite, South East Cornwall.
Jo March early art work was mainly of portraits of people and animals. More recently landscapes have taken prominence. Jo says: 'When I do paint people they tend to be archetypal because I want them to have a certain meaning within a historical landscape, which has changed so little over the years. My landscape art work is an attempt to capture the essence of the bucolic farm land which has hitherto changed so little in Cornwall.’ Every bit the ‘English Eccentric’ Jo March’s visions are full of joy and, as Colin Amery describes, are ‘voluptuous in their presentation’ - the hills, hedges and even the life stock, bursting with life. Her landscapes are at one the visions of her literary heroes, who include Edward Thomas, Ivor Gurney, Walter De La Mere and the shepherd poet John Clare. Her limited edition prints are a celebratory representation of the English countryside, with an underlying lamentation of its disruption through modern life.
