Jo Austen
Artist & Printmaker

Biography

Info

I am an artist, printmaker and writer living in rural Kent.

In both my artwork and writing, I explore the incongruous, the unexpected and patterns both unintentional and designed. I am drawn to landscapes and fairy tales with their resonance of the process of change.
