What first started as a hobby has now become an Artist’s passion! Jo is known world-wide for her pyrography and has sold artwork across the globe. She has been contacted by individuals in several countries for private lessons. In fact, Jo was the FIRST PERSON to teach pyrography at the McMurdo station in Antarctica.

Jo prefers burning on various types of wood – recycling some from a local cabinet shop.

Because each piece of wood has its own unique texture, grain and hardness, no two pieces of artwork are ever the same.
