21st March to 27th March | Contours of Colour | Jo Hatton, Maggie Lushington & Sophie Wardle

Contours of Colour is an exhibition of work from Jo Hatton, Maggie Lushington and Sophie Wardle.

Jo Hatton

Jo is originally from London,  studied for her Foundation at Wimbledon School of Art and then went on to do her degree at Norwich School of Art and Design. She now lives and works in Cheltenham.
Jo’s main inspiration for her landscape painting are the changing qualities of light and the sky. Always looking and watching she captures moments that inspire her through sketches and photographs. Back in her studio she works in oils building up the picture in layers, referencing colours mixed while exploring outside.
Jo also does commissions.
