Joan's Bio:

Best known for her figurative work, Joan’s paintings reflect rhythmic design and mood. Considered a skillful technician and conveyor of mood, she either works with a single medium or often combines several to achieve an impressionistic result. Her painting process involves layering rich glazes of color to emphasize both the realistic and abstract elements of each painting.
As an award winning artist, she has shown in numerous exhibitions and juried competitions on a national basis. Her work is represented in corporate and private collections, numerous solo shows and group invitational international shows.
Her paintings have recently been on a five-year tour in a collaborative exhibition titled “Odyssey”. This traveling exhibition featured the spiritual journey of three women artists showcasing painting, sculpture, poetry and music.
Joan has been guest artist on the TV.Talk Show “Get a Kick Out of Art”. She has published illustrations in ‘Odyssey – A Book of Poetry”, “Passages”,  and “Visions International”,  all books of poetry. Her works have been featured on both the covers of two issues of “Catalist Magazine” as well as individual article illustrations within these publications.
Listed in “Who’s Who National List of American Disabled Artists”, Joan is an all-media art instructor in Lakeland, Florida and frequently accepts work on commission.

 Artist Statement:

“I begin an idea by moving from logic to intuition, combining recognizable images interwoven with areas of abstraction and symbolism.  It is my desire to reach the core, perceive the very essence of that subject.”
