Artists Jo Baker

 

Jo Baker

Born in London and training as a dancer, later becoming a dance teacher, Jo has always been drawn to the world of Arts

In 2017, whilst overcoming illness, Jo discovered new way to express her inner creativity and immersed herself in the creative world of art, refusing any boundaries. She studied and experimented with mixed media, creating her own methods and techniques. This freedom from reality enabled her access to a new dimension in which to grow and view life with a new perspective. Now grateful to be in good health and proud of her battle scars, she wishes to share her story with you.

Jo cherishes memories of happy days spent at their family home by the sea and fishing with her father. And as a tribute to him, in 2021 she began to paint fish. But as a singular 'feisty fish' pushing against the current, began to immerge in each piece, Jo realised she was telling her own story.

Her combination of an ancient rarely used, reverse gilding technique 'verre eglomise' with her own experimental findings, produced an exciting and unique way to produce her reverse artwork on acrylic and glass.

Encouraged by the reception of her work, Jo took part in her first art show, where she was awarded Talented artist of the year 2022.

The singular feisty fish in each piece pushing against the current or daring to be different, has become her signature.

Jo feels her work has become a way to celebrate our inner strengths and self-determinationShe believes there's a feisty fish in all of us!
