The bedrock of Joannie’s work today is her training at Bournemouth and Poole College of Art and the Lorna Byron School of Art Dorset, commencing with natural history and watercolour botanical studies, enhanced by a foundation year in art and design and college summer courses, and culminating in membership of the Society of Floral Painters.
When Joannie moved to East Anglia in 2000, she joined various local societies and groups, and ran classes and workshops mainly in free flowing acrylic inks. Her main subjects of interest range from local landscapes/seascapes and gardens/flowers in watercolour or acrylic. After many years teaching adult groups Joannie has retired to concentrate on her own work inspired by her beautiful garden at her home just a few miles from the north Norfolk coast.
