Jo Paul is a London based artist, theatre designer, arts facilitator and a therapeutic coach.
She completed an MA in Scenography at Trinity Laban Conservatoire, London in 2003.
Jo’s work, mainly 3D and installation, examines the connection and disconnection we experience in the relationship we have with ourselves, our inner life, our desires, emotions, memories, and grief over loss, whilst also exploring how this links to the way we present ourselves to the world and the complex, vulnerable connections we have with others.
She often combines her work with a knowledge of costume design and the work is often fabric or thread based.
Jo has worked in the arts sector, designing, teaching and coaching for arts, theatre and dance organisations across the UK.
She has recently co-authored a chapter in the Routledge Book ‘The Maternal in Creative Work’, edited by Marchevska and Walkerdine.
