I’m Jo Bund, a mixed-media collage artist. I live by the Thames Estuary, on the east coast of Essex, in the UK, where I work from my home studio.
Art and textiles have always been part of my life. I loved art at school and went on to complete an Art Foundation course and gained a 2:1 degree in Printed Textiles at UEL. Since then I have been working as a Graphic Designer for over 20 years.
More recently I’ve returned to my passion for art. After attending a local Creative Journal course I began producing a number of A5 sketchbooks – sometimes concertina, sometimes handmade. Following the course, a small group of artists wanted to continue, so we formed a creative journal collective, called SEVEN. Meeting regularly we work on collaborative projects including sketchbooks and altered books, and have exhibited in the local Art Trail and have run several workshops.
I started this website to document my creative journey from what inspires me to lessons I’ve learned along the way.
