Out of the Blue

Joanne was born in Caracas, Venezuela. Her hometown inspired her to turn blank canvases into an array of color and form. In the early 90s, she had the chance to live in Europe and learn the history of the arts from a different perspective. In 1996, she moved to Tampa, Florida to complete her studies at USF. She resides in Ybor City where she works as a marketing consultant and fine artist. While taking her dogs for walks through Ybor City, Joanne finds rusty objects which she incorporates into some of her art. She also experiments with food dyes and recycled materials.

"My work is an abstraction of real life combined with a riot of images, which appear as a result of improvised brushstrokes. As a traveler, I capture the small details each culture has to offer and transform a blank canvas into a dance, a performance, a scene, a documentary or simply a memory from a different country."
