On the Irregular with Java Bere
Interview with Jo Melia - Visual Artist
Show Notes

This week I’m chatting to visual artist, community builder and photographer Jo Melia.

Jo and I chatted about growing up and living with her mum’s alcoholism and the impact this had on her creative dreams, parenting and being part of a neuro-divergent family, her experience of art school, her years working full time in a bank, setting up a make-up business on her own with two young children, the value of community and the unique skills each of us have to offer. 

Since we recorded this episode in early January, Jo has continued further down her personal creative path and is currently absorbed in working with paint on canvas. These creative shifts are also something we touch upon.

Welcome to episode seven with the thoughtful soul and queen of earthy colour palettes, Jo Melia.

You can find Jo on instagram @jomeliaart and @themelias.co and you can also find the photography workshops she co-runs with her partner james online themelias.co. Please refer ot the shownotes for links.
