A place of departure.

Each of Jo Tunmer's paintings wakes the senses to moments lost in time, and allows us the chance to daydream, and to travel to places half recalled that you feel certain that you've been to before. That's the wonderful thing about Jo's work, they can be all of our lost moments.

Standing at the point of our departure, she captures the essence of being in the landscape, physically connects us to it, and at times leads us along diffuse paths and roads that play with a core need that exists in all of us, to see what lies beyond the horizon.

It is no surprise that her paintings are finding an ever growing band of devotees on both sides of the Atlantic. If you would like to find out more, then visit Jo's website here.
