Jo Greenyer

Jo is a self-taught North London artist, painting portraits from her studio in Crouch End. Informed by her passion for colour and texture, her paintings have a unique semi-abstract quality, painted with organic acrylic brushmarks, using vibrant, often contrasting colours.

Painters such as Seurat, Warhol and Wouters are among the artists who have inspired her style, and her love of music has inspired her portraits of iconic musicians such as John Lennon and Jimmy Hendrix. Jo is most interested in conveying the more private personas of her subjects, reflecting both their passion and depth.
