Jo Cook

I am a mixed media artist and sculptor based in Noosa Heads, Queensland. My life and art have been profoundly influenced by my upbringing and lengthy career in Speech Pathology. When I turned fifty, I decided to pursue my creative dreams. My primarily figurative works aim to evoke emotions and create conversations about the journey of women in our current society. I want women to be heard and empowered to follow their own path.

My work and messaging continue to evolve across mediums. The use of layering and symbols relating to self-actualisation and spirituality are paramount to me. My mixed media pieces contain secret messaging and symbols. My originals also include a Haiku poem on the back of the finished artwork.

Jo contributed the paintings Nurture Your Heart and The Mermaid & the Turtle for our 2024 exhibition.
