Jo Paul - Artist, Scenographer, Facilitator and Creative Coach
Jo Paul is a London based artist, theatre designer, arts facilitator and creative coach.
She completed an MA in Scenography at Trinity Laban Conservatoire, London in 2003.
As an artist, Jo’s work examines individual and group status, and explores the oscillating tension between human connection and disconnection. She often combines her work with a knowledge of costume design and the work, which is mostly 3D, is often fabric or thread based.
Jo has worked in the arts sector, designing, teaching and coaching for theatre and dance companies across the UK for many years.
Combining creativity with being a hypnotherapist and coach, she is the instigator of a new project; The Cool Moss Project – A collection of artists and wellbeing experts working together to develop, explore and facilitate flow through creativity.
She has recently co-written a chapter in the Routledge Book ‘The Maternal in Creative Work’, edited by Marchevska and Walkerdine.
