Welcome to Zenart, the website for artist Jo Bird. For Jo, art is emotion; how she feels when creating a piece and how people feel when they see it is important, but either way, different pieces evoke different emotions in different people, exactly as it should be. Jo’s inspiration comes from her emotional response to life around her. Sights, sounds, smells, textures, shapes, colours, anything that makes her ‘feel’ is fair game for her creativity.
Jo lives in the home counties in the UK and has always been immersed in art, but for decades it was no more than a hobby… Until it wasn’t. Describing herself as a logical creative Jo’s love of the sciences often shows through in her work as she gives the subject her own creative twist.
Although mostly self-taught Jo does have a foundation degree in art and design. She works in a variety of media but her favourites are ink, watercolour and pencil and a lot of her work has a design element to it.
Feel free to browse around. The shop has Jo’s most recent work for sale but there are a lot more works in the gallery. If you see something you would like to purchase that isn’t in the shop please contact us.
Jo maintains her creativity by producing an art journal around a different theme each week. These are not for sale but can be viewed on the art journal page of the site. All works are available as prints in a variety of sizes. Jo is more than happy to discuss commissions, bespoke book covers or personal designs, just let us know on the contact us page. Alternatively connect with Jo on social media…Facebook, Instagram and Twitter links can be found at the top of the page. Or you can buy greetings cards and small prints of Jo’s work on her Etsy shop here.
