About the Artist

Halifax painter Jo Napier blends research and powerful portraits to create art that honours innovators and the innovative spirit. Before she was a painter, Napier interviewed female tech leaders like Anita Borg and Gerry Laybourne as an author - "Technology With Curves: Women Reshaping the Digital Landscape" (HarperCollins), covered technology and politics as a columnist (The Globe and Mail, The Ottawa Citizen, The Halifax Herald), was a Parliament Hill and Washington correspondent and associate producer of documentaries and a series about digital life for PBS.

She is comfortable in the corporate world, having worked as communications writer and consultant for public and private entities; and the media world, as a seasoned journalist who has covered federal campaigns and budget lockups. As a writer, she has helped create annual reports, award-winning documentaries, speeches for CEOS and has covered business and political stories internationally. A Halifax native, she been painting for over 15 years - having studied at Vancouver’s Emily Carr Institute of Art - Design and Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. Her first portrait series, honoring Great Women of Nova Scotia - little-known women who accomplished amazing things - was inspired by her daughter and was acquired for the RBC National Art Collection.
