This week the walls of the Abersoch Holiday Homes office have been beautifully adorned with the unique paintings of the very talented, Jo Gough. Cheshire born Jo is passionate about art and has created her own style and genre; blending iconic landmarks and buildings from many towns and cities we all know and love including Manchester, Liverpool, Chester and London with her signature touches of brightly coloured flowers. A focal point to any room (or office!) the original contemporary artwork is growing in notoriety and her acclaimed work is now featured on giftware available at desirable locations including The Liverpool Life Museum, The Lowry and Bridgewater Hall. An untrained artist who initally indulged her talents just for pleasure alongside studying Computer Programming and a career in local government has really made an impact.
As a tourist to the Llŷn Peninsula for many years, Jo's passion for Abersoch and the Llŷn have naturally collided with her passion for art producing stunning new additions to her portfolio. Jo has created 2 delightful pieces featuring the renowned Abersoch beach huts and the St Tudwal's Islands. The 2 pieces are now exhibited in the Abersoch Holiday Homes office on the High Street and can be viewed during our office opening times and can be purchased on line at jogoughart.com.
