Jo Morris’ Art Exhibition
Jo Morris is a true inspiration. At the age of 5, 1995, she was diagnosed with Juvenile Dermatomyositis. This physical disability caused severe muscle-wasting resulting in Jo being confined to a wheelchair. With great determination and a passion for art Jo taught herself to paint and has developed herself as an artist.
Jo graduated in 2008 from the Brisbane School of Distance Education. She successfully completed a Certificate II in Creative Arts and received many awards including several honour awards and also the ‘Endeavour Award’.
Since then she has displayed and sold work through Martin Galleries and other local art shows.
This year Jo won the ‘People’s Choice Award’ at Art From The Margins. Jo also won a Special Artistic Merit Award through the Everylife Art Contest USA.
Here are some pictures of her art…
Jo’s work will be up for the month of November 2012. 10% of all purchases go towards ‘Believe in Bella‘. If you would like to purchase one of Jo’s paintings or simple speak with her then let us know here.
