Welcome to my website. Enjoy your journey through the gallery of my paintings. Thank you for visiting.
“Jo Jasper Dean’s painting technique combines the use of a centuries' old traditional grisaille, with a contemporary color palette so enhanced it would test positive for steroids. Finding her inspiration in the natural environment, Dean adheres to the reality of defining the form of the subject she portrays but breaks free with an imaginative color palette of saturated and amplified colors. The interaction and tension between complementary colors detonates a visual explosion that is simultaneously stimulating and soothing to the viewer.”

"Jo Jasper Dean is an artist living and working in St Louis, Missouri. She is known for her saturated, amplified colors, and she has successfully developed a unique painting style which has drawn attention to her paintings on a national level. Ms. Dean has received numerous awards of excellence recognizing her distinctive visual voice.
Jo Jasper Dean’s incredibly imaginative palettes and subjects are inspired from nature. The Exotica Series, featured at La Posada de Santa Fe Resort and Spa, has been extremely popular with our hotel staff as well as our guests. Currently she is completing new work in this series that will be introduced soon at the hotel.
As the Art Curator at La Posada, I am particularly impressed with Jo Jasper Dean’s technique of building strong colors, one after the other, without any trace of incompatibility, despite the fact that often what she places next to each other are from opposite sides of the traditional color-charts.
Her paintings are Alive and Fun and natural focal points. It is not surprising that many of her collectors have more than one!"
