The Old School Gallery

An exhibition of work by collage artist Jo Waterhouse, known for her playful and anarchic style.

“I come from a long line of artists and have been drawing, painting and creating for as long as I can remember. I have always been particularly fascinated by pattern and design. Before I started Hadley Paper Goods, I was an antique dealer in London. The shapes, colours and textures of the pieces I sourced were a constant source of inspiration for my artwork.

When I became a mother in 2016, I wanted a job that fitted flexibly around being present with my children as much as possible. I decided it was time to stop selling beautiful things that other people had made, and start selling beautiful things that I had made! I have a lot of fun in the studio. Sometimes designs are hand-painted or printed from a block, pieces might be snipped out of old books or magazines. I often use antique paper in my collaging, a homage to my early career.” —Jo Waterhouse

Waterhouse trained at Dartington College of Art. She has previously collaborated with Charleston Farmhouse and Kettles Yard, and her designs can be found in Tate, Hauser & Wirth and the V&A, and in private collections across the world.
