Jo Blaker’s artistic practice is rooted in finding connection through drawing. By making marks on paper Jo accesses a slower, calmer, more present awareness of the world inside & around her. Since 2019, Jo’s drawing practice has focused upon the sketchbook as a site of expressive, observational work generated through the course of day to day life. Her work combines an holistic approach to drawing with playful material enquiry. Natural rhythms, forms & cycles often feature in her work on paper & with people.


Alongside her personal practice Jo is a regular contributor to the learning programmes of leading cultural venues including Yorkshire Sculpture Park, The Hepworth Wakefield & York Art Gallery. In 2023 Jo was invited to be a guest tutor with London Drawing Group, with whom she continues to collaborate. 


Jo Blaker (b. Huddersfield, 1983) holds an MA in Visual Communication from the Royal College of Art & has been teaching for over 15 years.
