Pacific Northwest Coast
Originally from South Africa, Joanne has made Vancouver her home. Her love of the beaches and ocean continues in the northern hemisphere, where the Pacific Northwest forests and rivers meet the Salish Sea. She’s developing a Pacific Northwest Coast series – starting with dry summer grasses on Salt Spring Island, future works will explore the shores of Vancouver and the Islands, with driftwood and pebbled beaches, island bluffs, beautifully distinct Arbutus trees reaching out over the sea, and the transformative nature of Spring in a Northern climate. The first of the Northern Blooms is her Magnolia piece.
