Joanne is originally from Scotland and has lived in Cape Town since 2004. Although showing promise in art in high school, Joanne chose to train as a physio and worked in Scotland after graduating. In 2003 Joanne quit her job, went travelling and met her South African husband to be in Mozambique. They then spent many years travelling in their beloved Land Rover before settling down and having a family.
It was whilst being a busy mum to her 2 young children that she found drawing again and it became a wonderful way to bring peace into her life. She quickly began to sell her drawings at the South Peninsula Community Gallery and indeed won prizes in the “Tiny art’ competitions. She soon wanted to extend her practice and started painting with acrylic and found she loved working with colour.
Living in Kommetjie, she is deeply inspired by the spectacular seascapes, flora and fauna in the surrounding area.
‘I am so grateful to have found that I love to paint, and where I live is so beautiful, inspiration is everywhere’
