Her work is influenced by ideas, resulting from research and drawings in the metropolis, such as building and construction sites, whereby the effect of mechanical devises, and architectural structures appear to be in a constant state of flux. Much of her recent work is taken from the Olympic Site in Stratford, depicting an urban landscape of the developing structure of the stadium. This body of work is comprised of a selection of drawings, paintings and prints in monochrome, and low-key colour.

Jo was born in Southern Rhodesia.
She returned to England in 1954. She attended the Ballet Rambert School and went on to work as a professional dancer until 1972.
After retiring from dancing she changed her career and went to work for the fashion designer Issey Miyake and stayed with the London company for 17 years, during which time she was greatly influenced by Issey, his meticulous attention to detail 'line' and presentation.
Jo started her art training in 1994. Whilst working she was able to attend courses at Central St Martins and Chelsea School of Art. Her figurative life studies capture the feeling and mood of the model with the simplest of lines.
She is known for her 'Dancers' and for capturing movement. The 'Dancing Lines' series are frequently drawn from 'live' dancing figures, the lines take on the music. These figures are an interpretation of a love of dancing, a love of music, movement and a sense of fun.
Jo has exhibited her work since 1997 and is successful in the UK, America and in Italy. Galleries, Art Movement, The Affordable Art Fair, 20/21 International Art Fair, The Fountain Gallery, Hampton Court.
English Artist Joanna Adshead rediscovered her love of art after a move to Dubai (2007-2010).
Her role at the Dubai Community Theatre & Arts Centre gave her the opportunity to try out different art media whilst working and learning with an array of international artists.
Compositions are inspired by her time in Dubai and her travels including many trips to India throughout her working life. She particularly enjoys quirky animal studies (graphite and coloured pencil) and producing decorative and stylised abstracts (acrylic) that integrate shapes, forms and colours to capture the essence of favourite places.

My time at Art school in the 1960’sgave me a firm training in drawing and working with my hands in every medium available! All through my life I have created things, and when I retired from my professional life 10 years ago I devoted myself full time to sculpture and stone carving.
My study of art history at Birkbeck, University of London led me to developing a fascination for 20th century modern and decorative art which I then studied in greater depth at the V&A. I subsequently decided to focus on the classical methodology of sculpting with stone which I studied at the internationally renowned West Dean College close to my studio in West Sussex. I exhibited initially in West Sussex and Surrey, but my work is now featured in London galleries and my sculpture ‘Tension’ was exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2014. A series of recent commissions has seen my work being taken into collections in London, Dubai and New York.http://www.judylarkinsculpture.com
(Visual Artist & Facilitator)
I paint the encounter between visible and imaginary worlds with oil or watercolour ink through light, texture and colours. I paint portraits in which the inner and the outer landscapes of the person are revealed. The human figure is either transported to an imaginary place or coming from a mythological space and transported to an ordinary setting.
