Oxford Summer School

Jo Dixon

I work in mixed media, and this involves a layering of paint, print and collage onto paper or fabric grounds. My work is embedded in a relationship to the natural world; observations, feelings, glimpses and memories as experienced in the environment within and around us. Drawing is an important part of my process, and is developed by working with textures, marks, colours, and pattern to create a rich surface in response to the feeling of the subject.

I value the teaching role and have great enthusiasm to share my passion for all things creative, whilst encouraging others to be creative. I completed a PGCE in Art and a Foundation in Art Therapy which has enabled me to work with a wide range of adults and children delivering courses and workshops and currently working as a part time Art teacher in school as well as pursuing and developing my freelance Art practise. I exhibit regularly and complete private commissions.

I trained at Winchester School of Art completing a BA in Textile Design and Print. I have completed further ongoing studies into a range of art disciplines including; printmaking, Fine Art painting and drawing. I completed a PGCE in Art at Oxford Brookes University and earlier a Foundation in Art Therapy at Bath Spa University.

I have worked as a self employed artist for over 30 years and have exhibited widely, also taking on Private and Public commissions – Oxfordshire County Collection, Brita Water Head quarters , and The Warneford Hospital Oxford.
