Artist: Joanne Cremer
Bio: Joanne was born in Ontario and lived there most of her life until October 2007 when she moved to Rossland, BC. In the early 1970s, Joanne was in a partnership owning and operating a 2000 sq. ft. Art Gallery on Yonge Street in Toronto. Having an appreciation for art, she decided that she wanted to learn how to paint. Her first art experience was with watercolour. Her first instructor painted in a very controlled manner ( a kernel of corn – was a kernel of corn) making the experience very difficult that I almost gave up. A year or so later, she decided to try again and signed up at the Etobicoke School of the Arts. It is there that she began her journey with Eva Lewarne who taught “Drawings on the Right Side of the Brain.” Eva’s classes were an introduction to oils, acrylics, watercolour and pastels. Classes were inspiring and informative as well as progressive.
Studying with several Artists at different schools and studios has given her the opportunity to learn new and exciting ways of Expression. Undoubtedly, she has been frustrated, but she keeps remembering what Douglas Walton who was one of her instructor’s would say “wrong is right” and she kept on going.
Painting transports Joanne into a completely different realm. Totally unaware of time, you are in that special place of peace and creativity. It is exhilarating and sometimes terrifying; ot it is scary alright, so here is to her journey. May she continue to be inspired by this “Fractal Universe” we live in.
