In our Fairfax showroom: Jo Fleming
I stumbled on Jo and her outstanding abstract paintings during last year’s Great Falls Art Studio Tour. And even though that was last October, her work never left my mind. Jo’s artwork fits in beautifully with the furniture in our Fairfax showroom.
Jo was born in the Appalachian mountains of Virginia, where she says “the pristine deciduous forest was permanently recorded in my psyche. I always knew I would be an artist from early childhood”. The natural world is her true inspiration, and she sees it every day in the woodlands surrounding her Great Falls home.
Jo studied Fine Art at the Maryland Institute of Art and now works in the Architectural Design field. She has been an artist for more than 20 years, painting the magnificent landscapes around her and transforming them into unforgettable works of art.
Jo prefers painting with oils and acrylics, but has also been experimenting with mixed media. We’ll have to wait and see what she comes up with next.
