Jo Dounis is an acrylic and mixed media artist. The daughter of an architect, she was born into a world of creativity and from a very young age has been passionate about design and colour. She studied art in her youth and interior design in later years and has worked in the industry for over twenty years. With a foot in both the world of Art as well as that of Interior design, Jo has always had the belief that these two worlds can mesh together to create something special and meaningful in one's environment.
Jo has two very distinctive art styles, through which she expresses her passion for light, texture and colour. One is fluid with an ethereal quality where colours blend and flow together to create organic shapes and designs, and the other is textural, creating a 3-dimensional, almost tactile experience for the viewer. Her art is abstract or semi-abstract, painted on porous surfaces like canvas or non-porous ones like acrylic glass.
Her desire is to connect with the viewer on a deeply emotional level and inspire positive feelings of joy, calm, wonder and serenity.
Jo Dounis’s art can be found in private collections in Malta, Italy, the U.K., Dubai and the U.S.A.
