Jo's Web Wizardry

Hello, my name is Jo Atherton and I have recently taken on the role as the HVA Online Media Consultant.

 I am a Potter, and a Fellow of Digswell Arts Trust, but in a previous life worked for ten years as a Web Designer and Editor in London. This career saw me working on websites for the British Library, Cancer Research UK, University College London and even Girl Guiding UK!

Although the potter's wheel is currently my favourite gadget, I'm keen to share my knowledge of the internet and help both Herts Visual Arts, and individual artists improve their online presence using all the fabulous free resources that exist out there.

I'll be focusing on a different aspect of online marketing or social media each month to help you improve your online presence and publicise your art.
