At Home

Learning to see deeply that which I see daily
This quiet house
my window view
the cat asleep
a time for seeing and painting

Joan is a local painter focusing on plein air painting in the warmer months and studio paintings when it’s cold. She is a member of the Fredericksburg Plein Air painting group and shows her work locally. About her show "At Home" she says, “I try to capture my impression of a fleeting moment of light on my everyday surrounds: A large abandoned barn I have driven past for 20 years in early morning haze, a leaning pine tree set on fire visually as the sun sets. The mundane and often unremarkable can become transformed by light grazing its surface. [These] are visual moments that I felt prompted to look deeply and record in paint.”

Joan taught art in public and private schools from kindergarten to twelfth grade for over twenty years. She has a BFA from VCU specializing in painting and printmaking, a BS from University of Maryland in Art Education, and a Masters degree from VCU in Interdisciplinary Arts.
