Jo Swigart was born in Alva, OK and raised in west Oklahoma City, from a young age art and creativity were instilled within Jo by her mother, who is an artist in her own right. Drawing has always been an outlet for her, whether it be an emotional outlet or way to help others to see the beauty beyond what we ordinarily see. "I have always been a bit different, but I was raised to face the world and fit where I need to be."

Initially pursuing an education in architecture, it abruptly stopped when she had the opportunity to make a living with tattoos. A tattoo artist for 17 years, owning her own studio for 13 of that before being forced to retire due to rheumatoid arthritis in her hands. Her work has been published in nine major magazines as well as two coffee table books. She has shown her work in the painting medium in numerous galleries since 2019.

"This has been a journey of self-discovery and reinventing myself through art. The outlet that allows me to share my deepest emotions, insecurities, admiration, and my dreams with the world in a visual way. Painting is deeply healing for me and the act of doing so is extremely enlightening through the challenges I place before myself."
