Jo Diane Kasper grew up in the mountains of Arizona, studied fine art and photographic art at Arizona State University and the University of Iowa. She lived in New York City for many years working in fine art photography and exploring several fields including horticulture. Jo returned to the southwest in 1997 and made New Mexico her home.
Growing up in Arizona gave Jo a deep love and appreciation for the subtle and often mysterious beauty of the land and the ancient places of the southwest. Her paintings, watercolors, sepias, and oil paintings of these ancient ruins and sacred places capture the divine and mystical connections between Spirit, Nature, and Humans. Her paintings reflect these connections in a transcendent impressionistic technique; evoking a sense of the precious and eternal oneness of the universe in which we live.
