Awarded Artist of the Year 2012 by the Society of All Artists and one of the few artists chosen by the BBC to paint the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Pageant from the Millennium bridge, Haidee-Jo is a full-time professional artist known for painting landscapes and seascapes ‘en plein air’.
She is a member of the Royal Institute of Oil painters (ROI) and the Royal Society of Marine Artists (RSMA) and her work can be seen each year at the Mall Galleries in London with these prestigious societies. Haidee-Jo writes regularly for The Artist magazine and is proud to be one of their three editorial consultants, alongside Ken Howard RA and David Curtis ROI RSMA. Her first book on oil painting, ‘Vibrant Oils’ (published by Search Press), has been republished in Spanish, Italian, French and Chinese. Although oils are very much her preferred medium, in the 1990’s Haidee-Jo produced a large body of work for the Encyclopaedia of Watercolour Techniques book. In recent years she has been invited to judge UK and international plein air events, after previously winning many prizes for her work which features fresh and vibrant brushwork coupled with keen drawing and observational skills.
