jo GRIFFTH - One More Great Quilt Artist

jo is an amazing artist-and a great friend,,, though we only met a couple of years ago she is one of those special people you just click with. She's got quite a history and I hope you get her at some point to share about her race car driving! We really got to know each other better when she began to oversee an annual invitational exhibit that travels throughout the country. Keep an eye out for this years' Noble Seasons: Summer... they are out there somewhere.

In her own words: I have been creating art since acquiring my first box of crayons and my art has been evolving ever since. I seem to be an eternal student and the more art I produce, the more my art changes. Because of this, my art has traversed most of the fiber arts, almost all arts involving water media I am involved in and because of that, am very much aware that the journey is the objective. My professional life has taken many paths and after more than 35 years as a Scientific Illustrator, I am now in partial retirement and able to spend considerably more time on my own art. Surprisingly, science seems to be finding it's way back into my personal art on a regular basis.read more about jo over on the QuiltsOntheWall web gallery.

Fantastic art, and I absolutely LOVE that photo of you with your skeleton hoodie and your hair blowing up crazily in the wind (or I assume there is wind). Congratulations on fantastic quilts!!!
