Jo'Anne Kelly's work often refers to mythological themes. Whether a painting, a work in porcelain or a neck piece, the whimsical and mythic often find play. She has never been able to restrict herself to working in one medium.
Enthralled by the vibrant colours of dyed silk, she produces a wide range of hand dyed silk pieces ranging from scarves to large wall pieces. At the same time she loves the challenge of working with the translucency of porcelain and creates thin-walled vessels, as well as functional bowls, vases, platters and ceramic wall pieces. She is also frequently engaged in producing jewelry from silver, precious stones and other materials.
