My name is Jo Bund and I’m a designer, mixed-media artist and maker living in Westcliff-on-sea. I’m also one of the artists in SEVEN, a creative journal collective.
I’m passionate about texture, pattern and line and take inspiration from my surroundings, particularly nature, urban architecture and the estuary.
I studied Printed Textile Design at UEL and started out as a freelance textile designer in London. I then worked as a graphic designer for over 15 years and I’m now running my own design business alongside my art practice.
I’m always looking for new avenues to explore and I have recently rediscovered my passion for life-drawing, creative journals and altered books, textile art, collage and printmaking.
I started this blog as a journal of my various projects and to share any how-to’s and lessons I’ve learned along the way. I hope you find it interesting!
