Manchester Art Fair 2024


J R Oatts

Stand: 961

J R Oatts - aka - Joanne Oatts, is a British abstract artist whose practice focuses on the theme of 'colour in motion'. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and fairs in London, around the UK and internationally online, with collectors and followers across the globe.

Originally from Essex, and having lived in London for years, she has recently relocated her studio practice to the Peak District in the north of England.

Working in vibrant acrylics, she creates expressive, highly textured work that explores the concept of movement and connection - be that in nature, the body, or our thoughts within.

2023 will be her second time exhibiting at Manchester Art Fair.
