I couldn't think of a person I would rather study art-making with more than Jo, or a venue more conducive than her Creative Arts studio. Combined, the two add up to hours of bliss! I quite happily make the trek each week from all over Melbourne, knowing each time that the payoff is well and truly worth it. Through her encouragement, guidance, warmth and unique way of interpreting the world, Jo has helped me to learn to love making art again. Now I quite happily spend hours of my own time being creative; something I hadn't been able to bring myself to do since I was a kid. I could never recommend Jo's workshops, classes and retreats highly enough.
