I was completely captivated by the level of detail and how the drawing was so lifelike and a true picture of my Pia! It is my most treasured piece of artwork! Jo is an amazing artist and I look forward to more pieces to come! 💝💖❤️"

"I recently purchased a piece from Jo during the Small Studio Sunday event. I fell in love with a colourful picture of a dragonfly on a water lily and decided to grab it. It arrived very quickly in the post and was very well wrapped, with lots of bubble wrap to protect it during its travels and a lovely thank you note from Jo. Thanks very much Jo, I would definitely have confidence ordering again :)"
"I recently had my children’s book illustrated by Jo because I knew what an amazing artist she was already, so I only hoped she would illustrate my book, boy did I get lucky, she fit me in. Jo is absolutely incredible to work with. She shows much love, care and passion for what she does. She wants to make sure you’re happy with what you are creating together. She’s patient and listens to your needs. As well as being a talented artist, she is a beautiful, lovely person. I am blessed to know her. I couldn't recommend Jo highly enough. Thank you for everything!" - Anna Junker (Facebook)
"JoAnn went above and beyond my already high standards of what I wanted. She is very easy to work with and communicate with. She got the exact look of my pugs for my first book with her. I can't recommend her enough because she is very versitile with her talents."
