Jo Reimer is a mixed media artist from Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Jo began her training with drawing classes in the early 80s. Her first foray into painting started with fabric; she painted “wearable art” as well as art for the home. She then decided to experiment with painting on canvas and after exploring many mediums she discovered oils. After spending years developing her skills in oil Jo has now expanded her art using oil, cold wax, acrylic and collage.
Jo finds joy in exploring her intuition with paint in either realistic, abstract or a combination of forms. Faces and figures being one of her main elements.
As well as originals Jo has reproduced a selection of her work on aluminum. She is thrilled with the play of light on the aluminum as well as the durability and lightweight quality of the pieces. The aluminum is UV resistant and they make great outdoor art! You will see Jo's quirky images of goats and crows and landscapes featuring rusted vehicles in the Metal Prints gallery on this site.
Jo Reimers' work can be found in private collections throughout Canada and the UK.
