Joan’s vibrant colors and her free-spirited style reflects her lifestyle.  In each painting, you can see her love of life!

She was born and raised in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.  She graduated from the University of Alabama with a major in painting and a degree in Art Education.  Joan lives in Vestavia Hills, a suburb of Birmingham, Alabama.  Joan is also a Registered Nurse and works part-time in the Division of Pediatric Cardiology at UAB Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama.

She shares her painting talents by participating in art shows and festivals around the southeast. She works with designers and individuals interested in her work.

Her newest painting collection is full of vivid colors and delightful subject matter.  The palette knife creates impressionistic paintings that are stylish and interesting. The abstract strokes are interpreted to reflect what she knows and loves best, her family, her many friends and the joy of flowers and travel.

The “Do Wa Diddy Collection” includes a series of funky people, colorful abstracts, fun floral, impressionistic cityscapes and musical instruments. Enjoy!
