About Us

A passion for paint

Jo Shennan Symington has always had an artistic flair and long been passionate about art and interior design.  Following on from a successful career in Event Management and Marketing, Jo took a break to start a family in 2002 and was a full time mum for 12 years.


  Married to Jason since 1994 and mother to Olivia, Imogen and Oscar, Jo launched Imperfectly Perfectly 4 years ago and has never looked back.


From her workshop at home in Weston Turville, Buckinghamshire, Jo paints daily, perfecting her skills and developing new techniques.  Primarily focussed on commission work, Jo has an extensive portfolio and client's travelling from all over the UK, some as far afield as Cornwall, Norfolk and Teeside.

And when she has a spare minute she also upcycles pieces to sell.

With over 31,000 wordwide followers on Facebook, and 14 on Instagram, Jo is considered a leading artisan in her craft.
