About Jo

Jo Witherington was born in rural Cambridgeshire, eventually moving to the Lakes in 2012.  She did not go to art school, but there is a strong artistic tradition in the family with Jo being related to a number of Royal Academicians including William F Witherington, who has paintings held in the Tate; and Henry William Pickersgill, the celebrated portrait painter who exhibited alongside J M W Turner and John Constable.  She is the National Trust’s official art supplier in the Lake District.

Stoney Broke Designs was started by Jo in 2014, when she was, literally that - stoney broke.  Working long hours on low wages after years overseas; she decided that there must be a more fulfilling way to make ends meet than cleaning toilets and pulling pints.  It was a dismal winter’s day in the Lake District when Jo finally decided to do something about her situation.  A trip to the local art supplier later, and ‘Stoney’ began in a junk-free corner of her tiny staff flat.  A few years on, and art has become her business, as well as a way of life.
