Jo Halden – painter

Bank House, Bishop's Castle SY9 5BQ


Who I am

I am a self taught artist living in North Shropshire.

What I do

I paint and draw.

What inspires me

I am inspired by the marks human beings make on the land; by human beings within the landscape, by contrasts in light and colour, and by patterns.

Why I do it

Because I have always done it.

My work this year

This year I am looking at patterns, at the human figure in the landscape. So insignificant yet so damaging.

Why you should visit me

Out of curiosity?


Jo will be exhibiting as part of a joint show at  Bank House in Bishops Castle, SY9 5BQ

Tea and cakes are available, and Bank House also offers Bed and Breakfast in one of its beautifully appointed rooms

It is also the start of the Bishops Castle Sculpture Trail, which is new for Art Week this year; so pick up a trail map!
