Jo is a self-taught artist who has been living in Dubai since 2008. As a child, she would always be drawing, crocheting or trying to create something. In 2014 she embarked on her journey as an illustrator, creating her own “magical rainbow world with loads of color”.
“Painting has allowed me to use every single color in the galaxy, every day, to speak to the vibrant parts of us that seek adventure and something unique – visually – in perhaps an oftentimes beige world”, says Joanne. Joanne has successfully carved her path and set her trademark upon her creative work as she has developed a very unique visual style.
Her style is reflected in the bold use of shimmers, neon and gold-leaf, layered on a canvas with final works giving texture and depth. It’s happy and supercharged on the highs of a life fueled by cosmic rainbow delights. Her signature piece ‘The Heart of the Matter’ is an ode to love and among the swathes of neon and drips of darkness, is the beating, gold heart.
Running from Monday 20th March to Monday 17th April, admirers of the artist can enjoy the works in the contemporary and tranquil lobby of Le Meridien Fairway.
