Joan has been enriched by the arts her entire life. Born in Vancouver, BC, she was raised and educated in California. Joan's work is truly "unreal". More than a gratuitous description, it best explains her style of capturing scenes subtly balanced between realism and interpretation. Whether painting landscapes or figurescapes, she says, "Every location, at a point in time, has an exaggeration of colour that transcends realism." Her paintings layer vivid colours and texture, and showcase her love of simplicity and succinct visual composition.
