If you are looking for affordable oil paintings and prints you have come to the right place. Jo Sharpe’s works are original and depict scenes from her home county of Norfolk, her favourite holiday area of Cornwall, as well as scenes from the beautiful Surrey area where she currently lives.
I studied printed textile design at Bretton Hall, a wonderful arts college set in Yorkshire Sculpture College which was part of Leeds University and began my career in the nineties selling fashion prints worldwide.
Brought up in East Anglia, I am inspired by the great British countryside and coastline. I love colour, creating surface pattern texture and playing with compositions.
I mostly paint in oils but also love to combine medias. Oil paintings can be affordable and I also believe that everyone can own a piece of original art whether it is a commission, an oil painting or even a print. My range of botanical prints are a real contrast to my oil paintings but they also show my absolute passion for nature.
Usually, I can be seen painting in my studio while my dog Tilly plays with other dogs in the park. For more information on my art and what inspires me read my blog
