"My inspiration comes from the shapes and rhythm of the natural world. I love the seasons and from my palette I mix and create the colours, using the paint to translate what I see and feel onto the canvas."
Joanna's love of colour and light originates from her early years spent in Australia, where she grew up surrounded by music and art. She studied at the Heatherly School of Art, London with various tutors including Robin Child. She is inspired by many 20th century artists but especially Joan Eardley, Ivon Hitchens and Nicola de Stael. Her own paintings sit between figurative and abstract; the colours and how they interact with each other being so important to her.
Joanna has lived in Devon for over thirty years and exhibits regularly throughout the South West and London.
