At the Show - Paintings, Furniture & Accessories

A very versatile artist and miniature enthusiast, Josephine "Jo" Meyer's  paintings range across several themes. She creates original 1:12 scale paintings, miniature copies of the Masters, and whimsical animal paintings. She also paints some smaller scale. In addition, she hand-paints furniture and accessories such as serving trays, baskets, boxes, and standing screens, to name a few. In 2001 she achieved the status of IGMA Artisan. Be sure to look for Jo's table at this year's show. JoArt@JoArt.com, http://www.joart.com/
