Jo Tunmer
Artist statement

Jo Tunmer is a full time painter and printmaker. Her work is often story based and she usually creates a new body of work that she focuses on throughout the year, ready for release every autumn.

Her practice explores the landscape through oil paint. She travels as much as she can and uses photography and sketching to record memories before returning to her studio. She strives to portray a sense of tranquillity and silence within her paintings.

Jo originally trained in Furnishing Textiles and Interior Design in London, later further studies in Fine Art at the Cambridge School of Art before relocating to the USA. More recently she completed the Certificate in Advanced Printmaking at the Curwen Print Study Centre. For 2016/17 she will be continuing to produce work while she also returns to studying part-time for an MA in Printmaking.

Jo particularly likes to work with groups of people, creating a stimulating environment using art. This could be a corporate or personal workshop, oil painting lessons or establishing events.  She is the founder of Cambridge Showcase and one of the three founders of the Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale.  

Corporate and private clients regularly commission Jo and several oil paintings and original etchings can be found within Addenbrooke's Hospital. Private works are owned throughout the USA, Canada, Australia, Southern India, Mexico, the Middle East, France, and the UK.
