Jo Roberts is an established British artist. A few years ago she started using the word ‘Commentariographer,’ a word last used in 1576, to describe her artistic role:

“Someone who writes, mediates, ponders, portrays or records. One who comments on current events and produces an expository treatise.”

She says “I am interested in the minutiae of everyday life and highlighting the specific. I am curious and inquisitive about people, places, things and their interaction with one another. I believe in the artist as a catalyst; an agent for change, often in a subtle way. I journey, investigating and recording the things I discover. I am endlessly fascinated by my life journey and use whatever media is appropriate to describe my findings.”
