Joan is an abstract expressionist and contemporary artist based in the Yarra Valley, Victoria. Her artwork is defined by its generous blocks of colour that are vibrantly expressionistic, often incorporating energetic line work.
Joan mostly paints using acrylics with substance which add texture to her work. At times oil paints are also used. She loves experimenting with different mediums and washes.
Joan works from her home studio in Yellingbo and is creatively motivated by the location and its relaxed atmosphere. Her art takes many cues from contemporary design and Joan’s love of interior design. She loves working with homeowners and designers looking for paintings with a custom colour scheme.
Joan’s art has been exhibited throughout Australia and also featured in magazines including Home Beautiful and House & Garden, along with the TV series, The Block. Joan’s paintings are held by private collectors throughout Australia, New Zealand, USA, London, Germany, Singapore and Hong Kong.
