The Free Spirits collection of paintings and prints was produced mostly by Jo in 2020 the year of the first pandemic lockdown. Many of the works are included in Free Spirits: Loss in Lockdown Exhibition of April 2021.

When South London artist Jo Sharpe and poet Rachel Sambrooks lost their fathers during lockdown, the restrictions on seeing them or attending a funeral were heartbreaking. They collaborated on this project that explores their creative response  to grief and to form a memorial space for others.

The Free Spirits: Loss in Lockdown exhibition of art and poetry was a tribute to those close to us who died during a time of limited contact and absence.  The exhibition opened on 13th April 2021 at Studio 9, The Old Stable Block, Oaks Park, Croydon Lane, Carshalton, Surrey, SM7 3BA. Viewings can be made by appointment.

Jo’s Free Spirits collection includes many works on the theme of birds as a metaphor for the free spirits during the pandemic lockdown. The exhibition also features works of art and poetry created by other local artists from the London Borough of Sutton who have lost loved ones in lockdown.

    • This spiritual artwork is called Free Spirits and would look wonderful in either a contemporary or traditional setting. Painted using gold acrylic paint, it looks brilliant in artificial light as it glimmers and looks really expensive! It comes alive in the space it is in. One feels calm and inspired just looking at it. 'You are welcome to 'try before…
