Jo Beattie June 2019: Head, Heart, Hands

Jo’s mantra taken from a quote by Ruskin, Head, Heart, Hands the three elements which go into her textile art work.

Head, the wonderful ideas Jo wants to interpret in textiles.

Heart, the friends and family, particularly her  muse Agnes, all remembered in Jo’s art.

Hands, Jo admitted the hardest part, where hands sometimes fall short of the heart and head.

Jo’s love of her textile art was inspirational and made  for a most enjoyable afternoon.

Agnes, her bright clothing a memory Jo recalls
Toys all carry memories
Self, children and grandchildren, toys carry memories.
Agnes portrayed without colour.
The shadow of Agnes , a memory of life.
Ugandan Lady expressing the same grit as Agnes.
