Jo Minoprio


Bradymoor north

I first came to live on Exmoor about 40 years ago !  Having worked as a designer/decorator; photographing at W/Es, weddings, parties, etc. and travelled extensively before returning to settle, with my husband and son  to my beloved Exmoor.

Here I continue to explore my passion for the wild Exmoor landscape, in particular my fascination with Beech Hedges!  We think of our Exmoor landscape as being natural and wild when actually the miles of hedgerows have been modelled by man through being cut, laid, trimmed or simply left over the years, forming exquisite but temporary sculptures of our time. The hedges have to some extent become a trademark of my work with my photography and artwork travelling well, side by side, down the path to discovery.

I am now exploring, mainly  with use of ink and watercolour, as seen in my recent pictures, turning more towards a  graphic interpretation of my subject, bringing out the designer side of me.

I am excited by my Tree Top Photograph series, again adding more of the design aspect to my work

Very excited to announce that I am learning a new skill, that of original woodcut printing!

  1. Hello,
    Our Year 1 children have been creating Exmoor artwork and would like to meet a real artist who has made Exmoor artwork. If you would be able to come to our school to show some of the children your artwork and talk about your artwork then please let me know. Our school is South Molton Community Primary School.
    Many Thanks
    Penny King
    Deputy Head

    1. I do apologise for not replying to this, I have been away all summer and had terrible internet problems. If you are still interested it would be a real pleasure to come along and talk to the children.
      With all best wishes, Jo Do feel free to ring me on 01643831171
