After 36 successful years in Austin, TX real estate, Joan retired to the Texas Hill Country when she has found time to develop her lifelong love of painting. She captures the richness and depth of character of both humans and animals as well as the extraordinary beauty of landscape in her watercolors and oils. From her early childhood skills when she designed her paper dolls clothes until now, she reveals her heartfelt inspiration in each piece.
Joan has been a student of artist Katherine Uitz for many years and attended workshops with renown artists George Hallmark, Martin Greele, Bruce Green, Doug Prine and Rick Dentinger. She is a member of the Highland Arts Guild/Gallery and enjoys commission work.
