There’s no doubt that Joan Marie’s talent and energy is fully expressed in her beautiful art. Her website bio states:
As a college student, I was awestruck by Michelangelo’s Sistine Ceiling. Profoundly moved, I thought if art can be that powerful, I must be a part of it. From that day it has been my purpose to visually express this positive explosive energy within me. My art career began with inspired ethereal drawings.
Within months, these drawings received national and international agency representation. As a result, my work was licensed by multiple companies for 15 years, gracing dozens of book and magazine covers, and purchased by hundreds of private collections around the world.
Recently, I’ve been inspired by Picasso’s words, he paints with “the mind of a genius and the freedom of a child.” My Abstract “Music Paintings” have emerged. As I paint to exhilarating songs, my intuitive freedom draws on my classical fine art education to direct the explosive energy that pours onto my canvas.
Of course, I find Michelangelo and Picasso fascinating, so I understand how they inspire Joan Marie.
I think you will agree that Joan Marie’s art is bright, colorful, energetic and happy. If you get the chance, visit her website and watch Joan Marie create her art. I couldn’t help but smile with her. I thoroughly enjoyed watching her video as well as look at all the art.
This last picture is so expressive, soft and lovely.
It is so amazing that one artist can do so many different kinds of art. I love the art of Joan Marie! Don’t you agree?!
