As a legal secretary for over 25 years, Joan is steering her attention to the one thing she loves most - painting. Her passion is evident in her work of which she paints abstract landscapes inspired from where she lived in the Yarra Valley and now at Phillip Island, Victoria.
Mostly self taught, Joan’s creative side was nurtured by her Mother who constantly shared her love of drawing & painting. Joan loves painting generous blocks of colour and her style is vibrantly expressionistic, often incorporating energetic line work. She is inspired by the landscape around her as well as taking many cues from contemporary design and her love of interior design. She loves working with homeowners and designers looking for paintings with a custom colour scheme.
