Thank you for the kind words.......
Thanks to the many companies, who see to it that art plays a significant role as a visual representative & artistic companion to their events. Because of their contribution, local artists continue to evolve & establish their own creative pathway, allowing artists the creative responsibility of development and implementation of their craft.

I have had the extreme pleasure of using a number of House of Jo Artistry services over the past few years and will continue coming back for the amazing talent and professional services. In some cases Jojo has been commissioned to produce beautiful artist creations for events, through Bighead Murals and in other cases she has provided amazing entertainment for initiatives such as CANFAR, Music Festivals and a variety of Art Gallery exhibitions. Every time, the service was outstanding, the girls were beautiful, a pleasure to work with and provided exactly what was needed and more. I will forever look for more reasons to use House of Jo and would highly recommend her without hesitation for any number of services.

Jojo has done wonders with my website, with very little prompting or input from me! Her descriptions are eloquent & fun, her layouts & designs are artistic but legible! I sent her photographs, & she crops them & places them in a perfect order! As an event supervisor, she is thorough, professional, gives clear direction to staff, while maintaining her personal charm with the client & her crew! Working with Jojo is a real pleasure, she is multi talented, has a great attitude, meets deadlines-just a great all around talent! I’m lucky to have her in my professional life!

I have used Bighead Murals for over a few years and nearly 25 events and have always been amazed at the ingenuity, creativity, and dedication that the team brings to each event. From small events to huge parties attended by thousands of people, Jojo has managed to impress both my clientèle and me with her ability to turn any space into an amazing party event. The ability to go forward with any theme and overcome any potential obstacle is an amazing aspect of working with Jojo and Bighead Murals. I would highly recommend Bighead Mural for anybody looking to bring their events to the next level."

TIFF Opening Night Gala- Theory of Evolution.
"Your work was brilliant. We could not have launched the World Premiere of CREATION without your unique talents. The overhead décor in the underwater themed room were brilliant. The jelly fish were the best! It is always a total pleasure to work with you and your team. Whether it’s the Toronto International Film Festival, Luminato, or a product launch, your creativity constantly amazes me. You are constantly able to interpret our vision and make it happen on the night of the event. I look forward to many more gigs together."

"Let it be known that for the past fifteen years Jojo has been employed by Northbound Leather Limited for the purpose of modeling (runway and catalogue), gogo dancing, and backdrop painting. She is professional and great to work with, an excellent fit model, and a great actress on the runway. I would not want to do a show without her because she adds so much to the event. I would highly recommend this multi-talented lady to anyone, and have."

Liberty Entertainment Group,
Vice President of Operations
Over the past 21 years, Jojo has played an integral role within our Entertainment Industry because of her multi-talented qualities. Her creativity coupled with excellent organizational & social skills allowed her to excel at her unique crafts.
As head of the Artistic Department at The Phoenix Concert Theatre, The Courthouse, The Left Bank, and The Crystal Room, Jojo supervised a team of some of the most sought after visual entertainment performers in the city, directed a talented crew of mural artists and set dressers and administered all aesthetic upgrades of The Phoenix itself.
Jojo is more than an Artistic Director. We recognized the value & importance of her position and her creativity, as her contribution quickly became a significant & reliable component to the many achievements and successes of many events at the Phoenix and to the whole Liberty Group Entertainment team. We are proud of her achievements and continue to maintain a working relationship with her and her company!

A big part of the success of the early shows was Jojo's artwork. Her and her team would work endlessly on these huge painted backdrops that became the center piece for all of my shows. They're attention to detail was the perfect match for our musical detail. We were all very aware that we were doing something important - historical. I can't say enough about Jojo's art. That kind of classical execution alongside the massive quality is a real commodity in today's electronic world.

"Jojo of Bighead Murals, designed the backdrop and set for our show “Swing in the Night, A Vaudeville Cabaret”. We simply told her the theme of our show, which was a 1930’s swing feel with a modern twist and it was to be set in a bar/lounge. She sent us a couple digital prototypes to choose from a month or two before the show opened and waited for our go ahead on the one we wanted. When we saw the finished product we couldn’t believe our eyes!! It was even better then the digital photo we originally saw and it added so much character to our show. Also, by simply adding her red satin fabric as our tablecloths and purple draping over top of the stage, she made the cast look like they were actually inside the bar/lounge she created. Jojo is a genius at what she does, she is so talented and such a delight to work with.
""The other bonus to Jojo’s skillful artwork is her ability to lead the cast on the day of the performances. We hired Jojo as our Stage Manager as it is difficult for us to run backstage and organize the front of the house as we perform in the shows as well. She is amazing at keeping everyone on task, running the shows on time and organizing all of our set changes. She is an incredible multi-tasker, extremely professional and knows her way around any stage.""Thank you so much Jojo and we are looking forward to the next project together.
