Josephine Ho is a contemporary textile mixed media artist, living at Winchelsea Beach in East Sussex. Her work has evolved from many years’ research into traditional techniques of plant, mineral and indigo dyeing and Japanese resist.

She has adapted these disciplines to create textile paintings and hangings that incorporate printmaking, drawing, wax and stitch resist, embroidery and collage. She has travelled to Africa, North America and also to India as a Winston Churchill Fellow, to research indigenous methods of dyeing and resist. Her work has been exhibited locally and nationally and is held in collections in Canada and Australia.
