Artist Statement

     Joanne is a Canadian wildlife artist, spending much of her free time over the years in the great

outdoors whether running, hiking, cycling or kayaking. Joanne has lived in remote communities in Ontario, Alberta and Quebec. This has fostered a keen appreciation for nature and wildlife and a desire to explore the intricate landscape of her subject through colour, texture and detail. Joanne has travelled across Canada, coast to coast, and marvels at the beauty and diversity of the scenery and wildlife which is subsequently expressed in her artistic practice. Although practised in a variety of medium her choice is acrylic for it’s ease of application  and the ability to use both brush and palette knife. Joanne’s recent series has focused on wildlife portraits, capturing their beauty in the detailed exploration of color and texture.

   

 

          

Biography   

  Joanne is a Canadian artist living in Temiscaming,Quebec where she pursues her artistic practice through freelance work  as well as  teaching art in the community and local highschools.  Joanne grew up in Quebec graduating from McGill University in physiotherapy, practising her profession for many years in smaller communities in Canada.  It was living in these  smaller communities that instilled in her a love of nature and wildlife which laid down the foundation  for her artistic journey. Off and on, the brush was put aside to focus on family, but finally in 2012 Joanne was able to put her energy into developing her practice.  This opened up the door to teaching art in the local highschools, window painting projects,  murals and creating her own Paint Nite style events.  Her work has been juried into art exhibits through the Federation of Canadian Artists and the Society of Canadian Artists. Her artwork has been published in  Ann Kulllberg's books CP Hidden Treasures 2, 3,4 and 5 and has donned the cover of the Federation Of Canadian Artists 2018 calendar. Joanne continues to develop her skills in rendering wildlife and nature in a variety of styles from realism to  a more contemporary style and through these images  she hopes to bring attention to the beauty of nature and our precious wildlife.
