Jo Angell began her career as a graphic designer but has since turned her focus to textile and surface print design. Her contemporary work reflects a mid-century modern influence accentuated with vibrant colors. The UK-based artist describes her art journey and influences as follows:
“In the early 2000s, an exciting digital revolution was brewing and this was not only affecting my graphics work. Digital fabric and paper printing, laser cutting and other technologies enabled people to make small quantities of products themselves locally and sustainably. I was keen to use my skills and be part of this revolution.”
“I am obsessed with pattern and colour and find inspiration everywhere: plant forms, buildings or simply from a random doodle. People have observed my work reflects a midcentury modern style which is fine with me as I love this period of design.”
