joann painting

Art is the constant in my life.

It is the interplay of my mind, heart, and soul as a personal creative statement.

My work is about wholeness, our wholeness, our connection.
I want to show that we are more similar than different.

I want to explore the process of life as I move through it.

My painting is about honesty and observation, a record of life.

It is about faith, taking risks, and commitment.

I am primarily a figurative artist.

I am drawn to the human figure because of the infinite beauty in all of its stages.

When I paint portraits I try to find the essence that makes that person unique.

In my more personal or narrative pieces, I use the figure and the implicit interaction of the figures to tell a story.

By painting I realize the beauty and complexity of our human experience.
