“I pull inspiration from nature and the energising lives of those around me”
Jo was the director of st + baker + studio and gallery in South East Queensland before setting up studio again in the beautiful South Island of New Zealand. She has been working, curating, and mentoring between Australia and New Zealand for many years and draws on the stories of crossing oceans into a lot of her work.
Discovered by Tropicsurf in 2010, St Baker’s unique self-created technique of fine etched carvings in timber and surfboard Alaia grew from her career as a painter, printmaker, and sculptor. It is this unique form of art and passion for all things ocean that drew Tropicsurf and Jo to work together.
Jo’s water themes integrated into her fine art are awash with elegance, energy, spirit, and stories. Paintings, Alaia, and sculptures all evoke an innate sense of movement, place, and time. She shares the universal language of coastal culture in a way that is like no other.
