The laying of materials, mixing of colours, and arrangement of unexpected objects allow Joanna Malcolm to tell unique story's about life and about the artist herself.
I am always exploring new things and this year has led me to creating unique one of a kind sculpture with “found objects.”
ABOUT THE ARTIST
"I paint what I feel… with intention but often times not, a reflection of an experience or emotion". Joanna Malcolm uses colour and brush with exuberance, creating bold colour marks followed by neutrals, grasping at those hidden pockets of delicious hue. With watercolour and acrylic paint she creates whimsical, impressionistic and abstract paintings.
This is Joanna's 7th year with Uxbridge Studio Tour. With the quality, diversity and dedication of my fellow artists she feels privileged to be part of this great tour.
Joanna has been painting for 17 years and has studied at the Haliburton School of the Arts under artists Brian Atyeo, Peter Kolisnyk, John Leonard, Steve Rose and Joanna Nash. "I am thrilled and excited by each day I spend at my Studio by the Green in Nestleton. It is where I am supposed to be".
Joanna has been regularly accepted into the Uxbridge Juried ART show and Whitby Station Gallery where she won best in the show “Looking Forward, Looking back.”
She has also written and illustrated a children’s book A Red Bird Told Me which launched in 2012 and more recently illustrated The Magic Helmet launched November 2015.
Joanna is inspired by experiences and the emotions that come with them. "I paint the places, I’ve been but primarily the feelings they evoke".
"I endeavour to leave a part of who I am and what I stand for in each piece I create. I love what I do and look forward to sharing my passion with you".
