Joanne, a resident of Portsmouth, NH, is primarily a plein air painter. She loves trying to capture a sense of the sights, sounds and smells of a location. “There is a wonderful story-telling quality to capturing a moment on canvas,” she says. She finds painting and drawing the beauty of the human figure a fascinating challenge. While she enjoys the magical transparency and fresh immediate quality of watercolors, she is drawn to the tactile sensory aspects of painting with oils. She particularly cherishes the mutual trust and friendships that have developed with art colleagues as she expanded her painting experience.
