Jo Quigley

Jo Quigley is an artist with an MA in Fine Art, she taught art for over 10 years but now spends her time dedicated to painting, Jo is also a published writer. Jo lives near the city which is something that is a source of inspiration for her art, the city and its people are a big influence to the subject- she likes to paint people going about their daily lives in the city and encouraging the viewer to look deeper at the characters in this city and their stories. Her preferred places to paint are crowded areas; as a result her paintings are both intimate and intense. Jo works with a wide range of materials, but mainly with acrylic as she has found that it’s the best medium for reflecting the pace of city life. Jo has exhibited all around the UK and has won several prizes and awards.
