Jo Verity — Mixed media
Jo Verity designs and handcrafts unique items of home accessories and decorative art. Using traditional decoupage techniques she applies images to ‘found’ and vintage objects which are then combined with mixed media. Items are finished with craquelure, shellac and wax which gives them a used and cherished feel.
Jo has a great love and respect for folk law within nature and the cycle of life and death within the natural world. She is inspired to recreate the journey of repossession of animals and objects that once lived among us that are now being returned to the earth. She especially likes to use animal skulls and bones, reincarnating them into beautiful unique pieces of art. Sometimes a little on the dark side each piece tells its own unique story.
