Soon to return to the USA after being in Galway, Ireland for the past 2 years – I did about 200 paintings during my time here thanks to the inspiration of surrounding beauty and loads of free time!! At age 18, I studied art at Temple University in Philadelphia for two years. My life took other avenues of creating such as massage therapy and music. Landscapes and environments are major influences on my work. My favorite medium is oil on canvas. I have been told that I have somewhat of a ”folk-art ”style.
I am revisiting much valued information about the importance of sketch, composition, light and shadow.
My first solo art exhibit was April 1-30, 2008 at the Westside Library in Galway. My second solo art show was March 1 – 30, 2009 at the Galway city Library in Ireland. Thank you for viewing my art and please enjoy. ~Joni
I want to thank those of you who did help to make this history happen in the USA. I was fortunate to be able to send in my ballot to Florida (from Ireland). I am so PROUD of American’s for this and will finally be able to hold my head high again as an American abroad and at home. Ya -frikkin – hoooooooooo!!!!!!! Yipeeee!!! Alleluhia!! Amen!!!
This morning I was phoned from the Kafe where I hang my art and I sold my Big Fishy painting for 90euros! Whooopieee! yahoo! It was hard to let go of, I must say, but there is just no room in this apt. for all the paintings I do.
Hi all. Sorry I was away for so long! I kept painting and feel I grew as an artist this summer. I did lot’s of skething and drawing in the parks and around the town. I hope you all enjoy something new here from me. Got loads of art supplies for the long winter ahead! :)
