Jo Fleming a local artist who has lived in Falmouth for a number of years after studying constructed textiles at Chelsea Art College.
For this collection I have been responding to the beautiful coastal surroundings we have in Falmouth in particular along the Cornish footpath where I'm lucky enough to walk most days.
Working initially directly from the source I create painted sketches which form the basis and starting point for a painting. Experimenting with different materials and tools to create textures that reflect the natural forms and ever changing light.

As a Cornish painter, I draw on the strong connection I have with my Cornish heritage. I am Falmouth based and work in community arts as part of my art practice, and as a teacher, with recent work including: The Falmouth Dock's Mural, Kimberley Park Automaton Project and Mosaics, community Arts for Abbeyfield and writing and illustrating a book for The Falmouth Art Gallery.
My practice is site based, working directly onto paper and canvas. This enables me to harness the physical and emotional feelings of being part of the landscape, expressing both weather and space. The work is as transient as the time in which it is painted. The moment is captured, fresh and honest.
