Joanne grew up in Southern California where she enjoyed experimenting with all mediums of art. She took numerous art classes and discovered that watercolor was her passion.
After retiring, Joanne attended many workshops with Oregon artist, Susan Bourdet. Susan has been a very strong influence in helping Joanne develop the style of her paintings today.
Nature and wildlife are a continued inspiration to Joanne’s work and can be seen in many of her beautiful paintings at Gallery 10.
