Bluebells in a row

Original cyanograms (blueprints) monoprints of herbal/flower subjects by Botanical artist Jo Talbot Bowen.

Jo Talbot Bowen is a painter/printmaker.

She is very fortunate to live and work on the South Devon coast by the Exe estuary near Exeter. Her studio is based on the site of an old dairy farm which she has helped to restore with her husband Matthew.

She focuses her painting and printmaking on everyday life, whether in the adjacent vineyard, the local fields and hedges or the estuarine landscape. Our increasingly urban, mind-based and often fast moving existence can lead us to be disconnected from animal life and the pace of nature. Jo believes it is important to pay homage to what we may no longer feel for or notice especially in our countryside, whether managed or wild.

Recently Jo's work has been progressing using the medium of oil paint on aluminium. In the print room she is experimenting successfully with photogram and solar printing on both paper and velvet supports.

Jo is a member of the South West Botanical Art Society and has exhibited at many exhibitions:
