On Exhibit Now
Artist Joan A Brown
Joan A Brown is a contemporary visual artist who was born in the UK, and grew up in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, where her artistic talent was recognized and encouraged at a young age.
Joan had a typical school experience, her favourite classes being any that allowed her to express herself artistically. She acquired her first award for honours in art near the end of her sixth year of school and later went on to achieve a diploma in graphic design allowing her to combine traditional fine arts with the digital arts.
As a self-taught artist, Joan began concentrating regularly on being a self-representing artist following a successful solo art show in Senigallia, Italy in 2003.
Working with such favourites as oils, acrylics, and gouache paints, she uses her photographic memory and life experiences to produce vibrant, realistic paintings of mountains, lakes, flower paintings, and trees unique to Canada. This picturesque environment directly inspires much of her work, while other pieces are depictions of her ventures and various travels.
Joan sees a collection of her paintings worldwide through various painting auctions and currently resides and teaches in the Toronto area.
"My aim is to produce quality artworks as well as various mixed-media creations geared at visually enhancing your personal and-or professional surroundings, which will in turn improve your mood, bring you joy, and connect you to your higher self." —Visual Artist Joan A Brown
