Joanne had a lifelong passion for nature, travel and adventure. She canoed in the Northwest Territories, kayaked on the B.C. coast and sailed in the Caribbean. She also climbed in the Rockies and trekked in Nepal, Africa and the Arctic. Closer to home, she was an enthusiastic and accomplished gardener.

These experiences helped define both Joanne’s life and art. Capturing moments of silence and solitude. Celebrating a sense of place. Sharing serene and joyful moments in time.

Joanne’s style is unique, removing non-essential elements to focus the eye on the very essence of her subject. Her palette is both intense and sensitive, mirroring the glory and infinite variety of nature’s own palette. Collectors have described her work as “bold… graceful… sensuous… vibrant… serene…”

Joanne’s works bring joy to private and corporate collectors throughout Canada and the U.S.
