Joanne Schoener Scott
A Venezuelan native, Joanne lived in South America and Europe before immigrating to the United States in 1980. Since her mother’s roots are Spanish-Italian, she is fluent in Spanish. Her father's ancestors sailed from England in the 1890's to settle on the Caribbean island of Barbados, where they still live to this day. The influence of this mixed cultural background plays an integral role in Joanne's vibrant paintings. After receiving a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art from TCU and after many years working in Graphic Design, Joanne has dedicated the last decade to her love of painting with Acrylics.
“Creating Art for me has been a lifelong passion, from the playful coloring child, academic art student to career businesswoman. It is always a personal reaction to the subject. A strong emotional response to what I see and experience. Most of my subjects are from nature – living, organic, constantly in motion. The beauty and perfection in the natural world never cease to captivate me, and sharing that with others is vital to the joy I receive from painting.”
