A teacher by profession, art has remained Joan's passionate hobby. Following retirement from teaching, she has had welcome time to pursue a second career and pastime as an artist. She paints with oils and acrylics, but her preferred medium is watercolour which she feels best captures the soft hues and translucent light patterns so prevalent in the Vancouver Island environment.
Joan strives to capture and communicate to others the emotional tone and beauty of the landscapes and scenes she observes, sharing rare moments of wonder while finding a balance between artistic impression and attention to design and realistic detail. An active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists as well as several Vancouver Island arts associations.
