Jo Buonaguidi was born in Southern Rhodesia and returned to England in 1954 where she attended the Ballet Rambert School and went on to work as a professional dancer until 1972. On retiring from dancing she went to work for the fashion designer Issey Miyake and stayed with his London company for 17 years. She was greatly influenced by Issey and his meticulous attention to ‘line’ and presentation.
Jo started her art training in 1994 and attended courses at Central St Martin’s and Chelsea School of Art.
She is known for her ability to capture movement and her work reflects her own love of music, dancing and fun.
Jo has exhibited her work since 1997 and is successful in the Uk, USA and Italy.
