Joanne is a painter whose favored mediums of acrylic and watercolor open a range of possibilities to explore and revel in a continuous experimentation process. Drawing up her creative experience as a former textile designer, Joanne’s visual vocabulary incorporates historical imagery combined with layered abstract forms and gestural brushstrokes resulting in a balance between control and spontaneity resulting in a bold interplay of color and composition.


Primarily self-taught in painting, Joanne has studied with numerous master artists in the US. A graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology and Rutgers University, Joanne is a signature member of the Garden State Watercolor Society and a selected member of the highly competitive NJ Emerging Artist Program at the Monmouth Museum. Her work is in several private collections throughout the US.
