Folk artist Joanie Bee recently arrived from the West Coast, where she built a solid clientele of enthusiastic collectors of her work. She paints generally in Scandinavian (Rosemaling) style on trays, plates, bowls, and other useful objects -- often antiques. She uses vivid colors in acrylic to create lively designs of floral, fruit, and other themes. She particularly enjoys painting holiday motifs. She has studied extensively with Jo Sonja Jansen, internationally-known folk artist (who was recenty honored as a National Treasure by the Decorative Artists' Association), and with Mary Jane Todd and Scottie Foster. Joanie's work has been heavily influenced by famous New England artists Peter Ompir and Peter Hunt.
