Jo Westgate is an Artist and Printmaker based in rural Northumberland. She uses a variety of techniques including Drypoint, Etching, Aquatint, and Relief Printing (Wood and Linocut).
Since 2001 Jo has kept a 'visual diary', recording at least one sketch a day of life with two small children. This material is the basis for a forthcoming book, written by Jo and illustrated with watercolour versions of selected sketches.
The excellent selection of original contemporary fine art and printmaking at Robinson Gay (Market Street, Hexham, Northumberland) will soon include a selection of work by Jo.
