In nature there are scenes and images, fleeting moments, that are so beautiful that they must be captured to share with others. For me a camera is too literal, so as an artist I try to capture my immediate response to an inspirational moment.

I am a Colorist and Impressionist and hope that you find the wide range of paintings in my book a happy experience.

"Shadows are what initially draw me to a subject. Into these transparent shadow forms I manipulate subtle color variations. The juxtaposition of color sets up a vibration that enhances my impressionistic approach. Strong abstract design is the foundation of my painting. Capturing the color nuances of what I see before me further develops my style and goal. Painting directly on the canvas allows for my spontaneous approach to the subject. I am equally comfortable painting on location or in my studio." A third generation artist, Joan spent her formative years surrounded by the fine arts of her mother and both grandfathers, all professional artists. Joan earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the University of Arizona in Tucson. Studies with Lau Chun, Ted Goerschner, Jerome Grimmer and Sergei Bongart further enhanced her creativity.
