Award winning artist Jo Holdsworth is drawn to the individual in the crowd, the relationships between figures and the spaces they occupy. She takes inspiration both from the city of London with its beating heart, as well as the British coastline which she finds reflective and uplifting. Her work is evocative, distinctive and one can feel oneself being drawn in and lost in the scenes she portrays.
