Jo Dexter

2017 Art Trail

Painting gives me the vehicle through which I can satisfy my most basic human need to be “Creative.”
Whilst most of my life has been spent working as a Professional Opera Singer, performing regularly abroad and with Opera North, I am now forging ahead with a new career as an artist.
I work with oils in an experimental way, starting with only a very loose idea, the marks created and my imagination to develop something that is balanced, harmonious and pleasing to the eye.
Relying heavily on instinct I try to keep an open mind throughout the composition. The end product is always a vibrant take on local scenes and landmarks.
Art was my first love and it has been wonderful to discover it again after devoting so much of my life to music and singing. Professionally I aim to continue my journey of self discovery through my art.
Paintings for sale at “Browns Gallery” Otley.
Past exhibitions include:
Gallery at the Art Shop (solo, Ilkley), Art and Rose (Pocklington), TOGS (Otley).
