Joanne’s vibrant and colourful paintings command a wide variety of styles and draw on a diversity of material for inspiration. With a love of the tactility of paint and the sensuous quality of the picture surface she utilises all mediums to great effect, experimenting with mixed media and the addition of collage to create depth and interest to the finished piece.
Whether purely abstract or landscape based the common thread running through all her work is the resonant and emotive use of colour and a fascination with the raw materials of painting.
Joanne has exhibited widely, both here and abroad, at art fairs (AAF – London and New York) and with several major galleries.
Her work has been selected for exhibitions at the Mall Galleries, including the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours, Royal Institute of Oil Painters and The Pastel Society.
She was recently awarded the John Longley Prize for a pastel painting in the 2012 Love Pastel exhibition
Her work hangs in private and corporate collections throughout the world. Some notable commissions include Sandy Lane Hotel, Barbados; Carlton Tower Hotel, Knightsbridge and recently a series of paintings for the largest private yacht in the world.
