Sea Grape Gallery Artist Member since 2014
Fine Art Medium: Water Media
Joanne’s love for art was always a part of her life while growing up in Pennsylvania. Family and business didn’t give her much time to pursue her interest in it, but now in retirement years she can devote full time to creating artwork. Joanne studied art at Kutztown University and Wyomissing Institute, and with many local and national art instructors. Art trips to California, Arizona, France, Delaware, and Pennsylvania “fueled the fire.” Her favorite medium is watercolor and her love of experimentation has been rewarding. Her choice of subjects, coupled with an explosive use of color creates a unique signature style on paper or canvas.
Joanne is a watercolor and mixed media instructor at the Visual Arts Center in Punta Gorda, the Venice Art Center, and the Boca Grande Art Center, where her paintings are often on exhibit in their shows. She also exhibits at Art Center Sarasota, and is a Signature Member of the Florida Suncoast Watercolor Society.
