Joanne's striking use of line and colour and her careful use of space make her one of Cornwall's finest contemporay artists. Joanne has ben painting and exhibiting in Cornwall and London for over 25 years and it is fitting that an original piece of her work is now held in the public collection.

The painting is part of Falmouth Art Gallery’s permanent collection and can be viewed on request and at selected exhibitions.
