The World of Watercolor
Jo Lynn has always loved drawing, but did not work with it consistently until the early 90’s. It began then as so many things do, with a simple watercolor class one morning a week at an old school building. It grew quickly from there to learning a real love for the medium of watercolor. Since that first watercolor class, Jo has worked with watercolor, taken numerous workshops internationally in France, Holland, and Bermuda, as well as all over the Eastern United States. She has taken drawing & painting classes at Anne Arundel Community College, The Maryland Hall School of Arts, The Casements in Florida, and various other institutions.
Making the World Brighter
Jo has been juried into art shows, and won awards for her art in the Annapolis and Washington DC area. She has studied with well-known watercolor artists, Skip (William) B Lawrence, Joe Mayer, Tony Couch, Terry Madden, Janet Rogers, Kay Kandra, Carolyn Gawarecki, and a number of others through the years.
She completed a project for Tampa General Hospital’s new Neo Natal Unit to supply artwork for the signage in the new 82 room unit a few years ago. All of the directional signs and hallways are named after Florida animals. Each hallway is themed and portrayed by a Jo Lynch Painting.
Sharing the Love
Jo currently donates a portion of her sales to help various animal charities and shelters. Most years she donates several paintings to animal groups to sell during fundraisers. A donated piece of Jo’s work is also hanging in the Marine Science Center in Ponce Inlet, Florida.
She is currently a member of the Art League of Daytona Beach and she continues to paint every day, and loves it.
