Joanna Malcolm – Painter
I endeavor to leave a part of who I am and what I stand for in each painting I create. I paint what I feel, a reflection of an experience or emotion.
About the ArtistBorn and raised in Scugog, Ontario, Joanna Malcolm came to art after a 20 year career in nursing when, on a leave from her career, she enrolled in a painting class and discovered she could paint. over the years, Joanna developed her figurative skills and distinctive style through studies at the Haliburton School of the Arts and she never looked back. Much like the manner in which she stepped into her life as an artist, Joanna’s paintings are an awakening. Not keen to be pushed into any one box, her work is eclectic and varied. Her landscapes display an exuberant palette and loose interpretation that push the paintings towards rich harmonious abstracted works. Her love of travel painted in bold and whimsical strokes that force the eye in and out of the spaces of the paintings.Art has become a part of me, Joanna states, instinctive and just as crucial as breath.
