Jo Kimpton B.Ed, BA
(Art and Health)

‘I am a Pembrokeshire artist living in St. Brides close to the sea and sky that inspire much of my painting. I usually work in oil paint and my perception and experience of the Pembrokeshire Coast is central to my work.’

Painting style

Jo Kimpton has developed a self styled technique using oil paint. Her impressionistic approach explores light and dark and aims at a heart felt interpretation of colour. Jo Kimpton allows visual memory and feelings to merge as she explores the canvas with oil paint. Knowing her themes intimately she paints with warmth and aims to concentrate us in a meditative way…..a trapped moment is painted and the viewer is invited to slow down and slip from the rush of daily life.

Living on the Pembrokeshire coast Jo is known for her sky and seascapes.
