Art is to be an Experience!
Joanne is a self taught painter and constantly experiments with new techniques. As a painter, Joanne paints using vibrant color with mixed media textures & layers in a meditative freestyle.
Joanne began painting in the summer of 2004 while living in South Florida. Inspired by the abundance of mangos falling from her neighbor’s tree, Joanne painted, photographed and cooked mangos for several months. Upon returning to New York City, she realized she wanted to expand her painting practice from her small apartment to a studio space.
From 2005 – 2009, Joanne had an art studio in Chinatown. Over the years, she shared the space with several talented artists. It was there that she began to experiment and play with color on large canvases. Her first solo exhibit was in September 2008 in the Lower East Side of New York City.
In 2010, Joanne left New York City to pursue her creative projects. Since 2012, Joanne has been living and working in Savannah, GA.
Joanne creates affirmation art designed to encourage people to take inspired action to be part of the collaborative solutions to heal ourselves and our planet.
