Hi, I’m Jo Bund, an artist, designer and maker based in Essex, UK.

As an artist, I find myself intuitively working with collage, printmaking and stitch. I’m currently exploring mono prints inspired by botanicals, pattern and graphic shapes. I also love working in sketchbooks, and I am part of the SEVEN sketchbook collective who share this passion.

As a maker I design and make textile items that keep you warm! In my current collection you’ll find wrist warmers, scarves and socks which I sell locally at craft markets. I’m often asked for commissions, so please get in touch if you’d like a bespoke garment made for you.

My background is in graphic design and printed textile design, and since 2010 I have run a graphic design business, Equilibrium Creative with my husband Alex.
