“My friend is a wildlife photographer and captured Athena’s stalk and power perfectly I wanted her to be emerging from the canvas to the viewer showcasing her enormous presence.”

Joanna’s work comes in a variety of media from watercolour, oils, acrylic and pencil all of which are used freely to create expressive pieces focusing on gesture and character. Animals, figures and portraits are the main focuses in her work. She aims to capture the character of her subjects in her work rather than dwelling on precision and accuracy, believing that capturing the feeling or personality of a portrait will make a more recognisable image. A love of nature and water has led to colourful interpretations of animals and marine life. Joanna enjoys life drawing in particular and studying people, their relationships, movements, personalities and storytelling. These interests stem from her study of animation at university
