Jo de Pear is a professional printmaker working with a variety of print techniques that include etching, lithography, collagraph and silkscreen. She has in the past printed onto glass, wood, paper and metal. Recent works have been made using the cyanotype print process, exposing sensitised paper to the strong UV light of the Caribbean sun to produce the final Prussian blue print.



Jo has exhibited widely across the UK; at The Bargehouse Gallery, The Coningsby Gallery, The Mernier Chocolate Factory, Clifford Chance, Glasgow Print Studio, National Gallery Edinburgh, The Barbican, Bainbridge Print Open, Mall Galleries, Bankside Gallery and most recently in the solo exhibition 'Here Comes the Sun' at The Department Store in Brixton, London. You will also find her work on display regularly at the Affordable Art Fair in New York, Paris, Battersea, Bristol and Bath.

Jo's work can be seen in publications such as the The Instant Printmaker, published by Collins & Brown, Etching and Photopolymer Techniques and Hybrid Prints, both published by A&C Black. Her work is held in numerous collections including at The British Museum and in the V&A prints and drawings collection.

Jo lives and works in London.
