Jo Mitchell Long

Jo is a contemporary artist living and working from her home studio in Surrey and her studio at Wimbledon Art Studios, London UK.  

Jo works mainly in Acrylics, as the fast drying medium lends itself well to Jo’s abstract gestural paintings. Jo paints with speed and expressive strokes and enjoys working on a larger scale where she has the space to develop her ideas as part of her creative process. Jo’s background in graphic design and her love of strong mark making has developed her artistic style. By breaking out of regimented grids and direct visual messages, and using colour, tone, texture and shape, Jo creates intuitive spontaneous paintings to connect with the viewer.

 

Jo has a great love of nature and human psychology, with an interest in emotion and communication. Drawing inspiration from both her London roots, graphic career and her current semi-rural living, Jo explores abstract landscapes juxtaposed with high energy expressive abstract works.

   “My mind is always racing with creative energy and ideas and painting is my release. Being in nature helps calm my thoughts and I explore the connections between nature, energy and creativity on my canvas”
