Jo Vickers always wanted to be an artist, but that didn’t seem like a proper job, so she went into admin instead. Whilst on maternity leave with her first child she worked on a big, colourful canvas for her new baby featuring bright, cartoonish buildings filled with playful details for him to discover, and her passion for painting was reignited.
“Jack’s Cityscape” became the first of many “scape” paintings. Jo now works full-time from her Wirral home studio exploring new ways to play with buildings to create eye-catching, modern pieces of art and working with clients to create deeply personal commissioned pieces that capture their lives through their most meaningful places.
Though often mistaken for digital art, Jo’s work is painstakingly hand painted in acrylics with bold, even colour and crisp lines. Her work is graphic in style, often featuring playful details. It is often based on real places, but rather than being geographically accurate, buildings are stacked and crammed onto the canvas. This disorder is balanced with precise lines; smooth, blended brushstrokes and carefully chosen colour palettes.
