Native American Inspired Art by Jo Walsh

WELCOME!
 I AM JO WALSH, A DIGITAL AND MIXED MEDIA ARTIST WITH A LOVE OF DARK FANTASY, GOTHIC , SURREAL ART AND PHOTOGRAPHY.
I HAVE RECENTLY BECOME VERY INTERESTED IN THE PAST AND PRESENT LIVES AND CULTURE OF THE NATIVE AMERICAN INDIANS AND AM CURRENTLY CREATING A BODY OF WORK AROUND THEM. I RESEARCH AND READ BOOKS ON THE HISTORY OF THE FIRST NATIONS PEOPLE AND AM ESPECIALLY INTERESTED IN THEIR BELIEF SYSTEM OF BEING ONE WITH NATURE, EARTH AND SPIRIT.
THIS WEBSITE IS THE HOME OF MY ART, INSPIRED BY THEM.
OTHER CREATIVE INFLUENCES ARE MY PROXIMITY IN THE UK TO THE MOORS OF EMILY BRONTE AND THE OLD TOWN OF WHITBY WHERE BRAM STOKER PENNED DRACULA. I AM ALSO FOND OF ARTISTS SUCH AS HIERONYMUS BOSCH AND MARK RYDEN, THE FANTASY/SCI-FI BOOKS OF CHINA MIEVILLE AND KOREAN HORROR FILMS!
I LOVE TO WORK IN WATERCOLOUR, PASTELS, COLLAGE, CLAY AND MIXED MEDIA AND ENJOY BRINGING MY ART AND PHOTOGRAPHY INTO PHOTOSHOP AND TRANSFORMING IT DIGITALLY INTO SOMETHING NEW AND EXCITING. I HOPE YOU FIND SOMETHING TO INTEREST AND EXCITE YOU IN MY ART AS MUCH AS I HAVE FOUND IN CREATING IT.
