Joanna makes series of paintings based on familiar landscapes. Whenever possible, working 'en plein air', her energetic, boldly abstracted images capture the immediacy of her connection with her subject, imbuing them with a powerful sense of place. A subtle, restrained palette, contributes to the intriguing, mysterious quality of her images.
The charcoal works on paper, explore ever changing rhythms in moving water, or the tracery of bare branch winter trees. Sweeping lines through shaded monochrome colour, convey an atmosphere of depth and space.
Joanna has exhibited widely, with paintings in private collections in Europe, USA Canada and Australia. Works in Public Collections include Brentwood (John Ruskin's Hone), where she has also been Artist in Residence.
