Textile artist Jo Maxwell loves nothing more than the challenge of transforming an idea or a basic sketch into a 3D creation to adorn the homes of local and international clients.
Don’t miss the chance to catch up with Jo at her forthcoming textile exhibition ‘90 Stitches’ in Apollo Bay over the long weekend in June.
While much of her inspiration comes from her quirky way of seeing the world and, in particular, the people in her life, Jo also turns to the past to find something new. Her fresh approach to traditional embroidery embraces techniques from a range of accumulated skills over a long career in design, dressmaking and more recently in creative surface stitchery.
Jo, who has lived much of her life in country Victoria, brings her love of nature and natural fibres to her creative work.
“I love working with natural products – cotton, silk, timber and I particularly enjoy creating pieces with linen. I like to collect, recycle and renew materials and transform them into my vision.”
