Mary Jo Fox is an artist who works in pen and ink and watercolor. In the past she has done pen and ink drawing but in recent years has combined that process with watercolor washes. She is a self-taught artist but has taken some courses in watercolor painting, and two dimensional design as well as sculpture in Houston, Texas. Many of her paintings are done of flowers that she raises in her garden. She works out of a studio at her home in Willard, Wisconsin where she runs a construction company with her husband. In addition to this she owns and operates the vineyard that supplies Munson Bridge Winery with the grapes for their Fox Frontenac. She is currently working on images for a fund raising calendar for Wolf Ridge, an environment learning center based in northern Minnesota.

Giclee Prints

The term "giclee print" (zhee-klay) denotes an elevation in printmaking technology.  Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates.  The quality of the girclee print rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art gallaries, and photographic galleries.  The giclee printing process provides better color acuracy than other means of reproduction.  These fine art prints are printed on the Ultrachrome Epson 9600 digital printer.
