JO MIDGLEY - Original Art
I am a self taught artist who specializes in oil painting.
My main subjects are native birds, landscapes, deer and spiderwebs.
I use an old fashioned layering technique to create depth of colour and interesting lighting. My style is easily recognizable because of the bokeh lighting, especially in my bird paintings which has become my signature style.
I am lucky enough to live on a sheep and beef farm with my husband and son not far from the Nelson Lakes area. This is where I draw inspiration from in my beautiful surroundings.
I am passionate about art and all things creative and when I am at home I am working on a painting most days.
My paintings are in private collections in New Zealand and overseas.
Some interesting facts about me: I am also a qualified chef and before covid I was working 3 nights a week in a luxury trout fishing lodge. I enjoy skiing, horse riding and having a glass of pinot noir at the end of the day.
