Since she has retired, JoAnne has discovered the world of art and the love of painting and drawing. Using watercolor, acrylics and graphite, she has created many landscapes and animal drawings. She especially enjoys having her friends’ animals as subjects for her pictures. Local landscapes are also included in her paintings.
JoAnne has no formal art training but has enjoyed taking many classes from local artists. They have offered a wealth of background by sharing the years of experience. As a member of the River Ridge Association of Fine Arts, JoAnne has been able to show her art at different venues around Spokane. Living in Spokane, WA., JoAnne has a studio in her south side home.
