JOLE DI FLORIO
Jole Di Florio is a visual artist based in North Eastern Melbourne, Australia.
Jole is passionate for drawing, formalising her skills with a Fine art degree at RMIT in her early 20’s with majors in painting and drawing.
Having focused on portraiture for many years she has recently been inspired by the Australian bush during an artist residency at the iconic Dunmoochin artist colony in Cottlesbridge, Victoria.
