A Message from Jo’s Family:

We’re very sorry to say that Jo tragically passed away on the 21’st of May 2018. It was very sudden and he did not suffer. We wanted to say thank you to all his friends both close and abroad for being friends to him. He’s written so much about his life online that we don’t even know where to begin to take it all in. We’ll leave this here as long a possible in memory to him and add some bits and pieces that we find along the way.

He often said “life was not meant to be easy” – with the sad passing of our loved one, we could not agree more.

Original Bio Info:

Joined RedBubble to show the world my art (oil painting) but, I guess typical of my age group, I indulged in anecdotes about my teaching career, Dutch background, life in Sydney, love of the beach (naturally).
And so, I do that right here. But, of course, I hope you appreciate my painting.

Thoroughly enjoyed meeting a variety of people who came to my “remembering – an anthology” exhibition!
