 Jo Mosen - Mixed Media and Textile Art

My lifelong love of colour and all things creative began as a child living in the wilds of Cornwall, surrounded by the ever changing colours and textures of the sea and countryside there.

I love the possibilities modern technologies offer and find myself experimenting constantly with computer related techniques, new mediums and materials. I work in water colour and acrylic and recently I have begun to explore the wonderful world of Textile Art.


New Forest Artist Tony Slade is building a good reputation as a highly proficient landscape artist working with acrylics on canvas and board.
He is inspired by open spaces and big skies producing atmospheric landscapes and seascapes in a refined fluid style. Tony developed many of his artistic skills during a long career as a Signwriter, many of the traditional skills and techniques were passed from father to son during his apprenticeship within his Father’s Signwriting business.
“Over the last 40 years as a freelance Signwriter, I have worked on numerous projects working to a corporate brief and I feel privileged to have been able to spend much of my working life being creative… however I am now really enjoying the freedom to paint what inspires me.I have wanted to work as an artist for as long as I can remember and started to experiment with landscapes around 10 years ago.

It makes such a difference to paint from the heart with passion and I hope that shows in my work.I want to make people feel something when they see my art, to hear the sound of the waves... feel the wind or the warmth of the sun… to smell the sea. I hope that my art inspires and evokes the imagination and transports people to a happy place or a special memory.

I have lived in Wareham for over 20yrs now and love visits to the beaches and cliffs around the Purbecks. I recently started my journey with fluid art which is an abstract style of painting. Using acrylic paints in various ways you can manipulate them to flow, merge and react with each other to create beautiful patterns on the canvas. 

It never ceases to amaze me the shapes and creatures people see in my paintings. I recently did a pour and a friend said she could see a mother and child in it. Come to view my paintings at the Purbeck Artisan Yard during July and see what you can find in my art. Due to this style of painting alot of paint escapes the canvas, but nothing goes to waste here!!! With the extra paint I make beautiful jewellery which are mini pieces of art, and they also make great gifts.
