Jo graduated from Mount St. Mary's University with a BA in Fine Art, after studying fine art and film in high school at Carver Center for Arts & Technology in Towson, MD. Though her strengths lie mainly in fine art, she is developing new interest and skill in both traditional and digital illustration and design.

Jo believes art is a method with which to externalize emotion and one's mind. It's how she expresses her creativity and passion for things often seen, yet taken for granted every day, such as simple forms and colors that stand out and capture the eye.
