Original artwork by Joanne Francis
Joanne lives in rural surrounds in the Mt Barker region. Farm life, the Ranges, water features & local beaches are reflected in images created.
In 2006 Joanne graduated from ECU with an assoc degree in Fine Art. Textiles, painting & printmaking were of particular interest. In recent years focus has been on painting in pastel, acrylic & oils, with skills refined in workshops with specialist tutors. Atmospheric impressions of places or significant people are the main focus of expressing in the various creative mediums.
Portraying beauty in art practice enables her (& maybe the viewer) escapism & relief. The love of textures will also seep into paintings sometimes in an abstracted way
