I'm Jo, a Textile Artist focused on hand stitched collage art.

  • I believe that slowly and thoughtfully stitching can create a connection - to ourselves, to the numinous aliveness of the world around us, and to each other.

  • My aim is to invite a shift in perspective, a feeling of calm and a sense of peace.

  • I believe we are all connected and creativity is a sacred thing, meant to be shared. My invitation is for others to join me and stitch along.

  • I create videos on YouTube with tutorials and inspiration for starting or expanding your own slow stitching practice.

Previously creating mixed media art, since 2021 my focus has been on stitch exclusively. My paintings can still be viewed here and my stitch related publications can be viewed here.


My studio practice is to recycle, reduce waste and be kind to the environment, using AP certified non-toxic materials - striving to be low impact, no waste, using recycled or deadstock fabrics.

peaceofpi studio is my creative workspace located on the shores of Burrard Inlet, near Vancouver, B.C., Canada, on the unceded traditional territories of the Kwikwetlem, Tsleil-Waututh, Stó:lō, Musqueam and Squamish Peoples.
