Currently, Joanne is concentrating on two very different themes in her artwork: the external and the internal. Landscapes are portrayed in vivid colour as vast sweeping vistas or intimate inner forest spaces. The ‘Bottled' series is an expanding body of work using the bottle as a visual metaphor for human communication and a satirical commentary on its failings and limitations. Deceptively simple on first glance, both themes are characterized by Joanne’s clear lines and clean colours.
