Painting and Printmaking
Oakley's paintings are infinitely domestic. The images she uses have become symbols of the celebration she feels for the women in her life past and present. The objects she uses are deeply cherished and carefully chosen.Trained as a printmaker the paintings often have a quality of surface that are reminiscent of these processes, she still enjoys printmaking and has recently started screen printing on fabric. Jo is a full time professional artist who shows internationally including the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
