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.
