ARTIST STATEMENT

“They’re the best moments in a day…when an image appears that you didn’t know would be there when you started work in the morning.” - Markus Zusak, author

Join me for a walk in the garden…my continued journey of paintings which meditate on nature’s elegant designs of intricate patterns and soft hues. While I admire and study my floral subjects, I see pearls and lace, cups and saucers, flowing fabrics, feathers, and more…melting in and out of the light. I’m fascinated by their fragile nature and inspired to capture them in the moment before wind and weather take them away. For me, there’s nothing quite like nature to put my mind at ease and bring beauty to my surroundings.

What is Gallery Wrap?

Gallery wrap is a term used when the canvas is stretched around a wooden frame (stretcher) and secured in the back as to not be visible. The sides of the stretcher are prepared and primed in the same manner as the face and then it is either painted a solid colour or the painting continues on the sides of the painting. This method of stretching and finishing allows for a frameless presentation of the finished painting.

Born and raised in Montreal, Joanne is an artist with deep Maritime roots, presently living in Truro, Nova Scotia. A contemporary realist, she creates both oil and watercolour paintings with a tonal softness and quiet atmosphere which has become her signature. With a passion for light and depth, Joanne's art investigates the subtle details and patterns found in nature and everyday subject matter. Each painting invites the viewer to simply take a moment to pause their busy day…to enjoy, and unwind.

Primarily self-taught, Joanne has painted since she was a child, enjoying all forms of craft and art. She was elected to the prestigious Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour (CSPWC) in 2002, the Society of Canadian Artists (SCA) in 2005 and the International Guild of Realism (IGOR) in 2015. Joanne’s work has been featured in several calendars and fine art prints, as well as Nova Scotia’s Contemporary Artists, Vol. II by Dee Appleby in 2010. Her paintings have been juried and exhibited nationally in CSPWC Open Water on six occasions, and in venues including Halifax Government House, Public Archives, The Halifax Club, Saint John Arts Centre, John B. Aird Gallery (Toronto), Robert’s Gallery (Toronto), Etobicoke Civic Centre Art Gallery, Festival of the Sound (Parry Sound) and several private galleries. Joanne’s work has won numerous awards and continues to grow in favour with collectors across Canada, the US and abroad.
