J/O Budd (fl. 1980 -) is an English artist specialising in creating art from textiles. Trained as a Fine Artist her work could be described as Quilt Art, but frequently contains both collage and/or printing.


Josephine Budd was born in 1961 in Norwich. She completed her Fine Art education in Newcastle University and began a career in teaching as well as practising her art. She is known for her art work using quilts, collage and printing.[1]

Budd has tackled a number of commissions for notable companies[2] and her work is in a number of collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum,[3] Budd's use of landscape in her work led Edexcel to recommend her as an artist for British Art and Design GCSE students to study in 2010.[4]

Budd lives near the Norfolk and Suffolk border with her partner, Brian Excell. She has one son.
