Joanne paints bright and colourful landscapes, wildlife and fun flowers using acrylics. She loves visual drama and contrast so tends to use lots of sharp edges and complimentary colours.
Living on Vancouver Island provides her with endless inspiration. From her backyard birdhouses to the fabulous trails, golf courses and ocean and mountain views there is always something that she feels compelled to capture in her art.
Joanne grew up in Quebec and Ontario and her background includes many years as a graphic designer and writer of marketing materials. While working full time, she took numerous courses and studied many different forms of art. When Joanne delved into acrylics she realized she had found her medium.
Joanne is an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists (Arrowsmith and Nanaimo chapters), the DeCosmos Fine Arts Society, the Oceanside Arts Council and the Nanaimo Art Council
