Jo has always loved drawing, but did not work with it consistently until the early 90's. It began then as so many things do, with a simple watercolor class one morning a week at an old school building. It grew quickly from there to learning a real love for the medium of watercolor. Since that first watercolor class, Jo has worked with watercolor, taken numerous workshops internationally in France, Holland, and Bermuda, as well as all over the United States. She has taken drawing & painting classes at Anne Arundel Community College, Maryland Hall School of Arts, The Casements in Florida, & various other institutions.
