art in paint & stitch
by Jo Morphett
I'm Jo Morphett, an artist using layers of colour
to create abstract impressions of nature.
Inspired by folk/outsider art
my mission is to connect with
the aliveness of the world around us and
create an artwork that is refreshing and revitalizing.
Whether working in paint with a palette knife or in fabric and stitch,
I aim to invite
a shift in perspective,
a feeling of connection
and a sense of peace.
I consider myself an outsider artist because I operate on the margins - outside of both formal and informal art structures and influences.
I create intuitively without salability or a specific audience in mind.
I share my work not to promote it, but because I believe we are all connected and creativity is a sacred thing, meant to be shared.
Studio practice is to recycle, reduce waste and be kind to the environment, using AP certified non-toxic materials, and striving to be low impact and no waste.
peaceofpi studio is my creative workspace located on the shores of Burrard Inlet, near Vancouver, B.C., Canada, on the unceded territory of the Tsleil-Waututh, Kwikwetlem, Musqueam and Squamish peoples.
