Jo Dounis is an acrylic and mixed media artist.  The daughter of an architect who also painted in his later years, she was born into a world of creativity and from a very young age has been passionate about colour and design.  A student of both art and interior design,  Jo has a foot in both worlds and has always had the belief that these two worlds can mesh together to create something special and meaningful in one's environment.


Jo's distinctive and versatile painting styles express her passion for light, texture and colour.  Ranging from fluid with an ethereal quality where colours are manipulated to create flowing, organic works to textured land, sea and skyscapes, many of which have an abstract, dream-like quality where she creates a tactile experience for viewers, intending to transport them to a natural Utopian environment, away from a turbulent, over-developed world.   

Jo has also entered the domain of sculpture where she breathes new life into reclaimed wood, sometimes using crystals, minerals and other mixed media elements to enhance the beauty which she sees in her mind’s eye. 

With 4 solo and numerous collective exhibitions under her belt, she is forever challenging herself to explore something new.


Dounis’s art can be found in private collections in Malta as well as in the U.S.A., Canada, Australia, the Middle East and several countries in Europe.
