Jo Peel is an artist, film maker and animator from Sheffield, UK. After studying in Falmouth, she spent her formative years in the East End before moving back to Sheffield.

Jo’s artworks alongside their technical brilliance and visual beauty provide an important archive of the ever-changing urban landscape. Her animation and more recently film work is both unique in style and visually captivating, focussing on themes of development, community and gentrification.

We’ve been fortunate enough to work with Jo over the years, so we talk about some of those projects and her journey as a trailblazing female artist since, as well as her ongoing relationship with East London after her move back home.

Jo will exhibit at the Ben Oakley Gallery 10 years after her first solo show there later this year.
