  About the Artist    Contact 


Joanne has been exhibiting professionally since 1980. She has a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Toronto and worked in the pharmaceutical development field for several years before returning to art and painting, both of which she had been immersed in as a child and adolescent. While she studied various art programs at the Ontario College of Art, Art Sake Inc., and the Schneider School of Fine Art she considers herself to be primarily self-taught. Her maturity as an artist has been an evolution based on experimentation, initiative, curiosity, discipline, observation, reading, dreaming, and attention to process. She also believes that her scientific background has contributed to her evolution as an artist---an altered depth.

Joanne is an elected member of The Ontario Society of Artists (1987) and a former elected member of The Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour (1984 to 2009). Her paintings are included in over 100 corporate and public collections as well as many private residential collections. In 2005 she was awarded the "In Celebration of Women" award for achievement in visual arts. When not painting, summer evenings will find her lost in her large perennial garden.
