52: ART

Joanna particularly enjoys painting and drawing animals

approached me with the idea as his father had been on the ship. I don't limit myself as an artist and like to work in several mediums and on a wide range of subjects. My aim at this moment is simply to get more of my art out there to build my reputation and hopefully I will reach the point where I can forge a career as a full-time artist.

HAOS Art Trail I'm involved with the HAOS Art Trail this July, which I'm very excited about. I am joining up with two other artists, Irma and Andre Westerdijk, so I hope that by having a sculptor, painter and upcycling artist in one location, we will attract quite a few members of the public. As well as selling my art, I produce prints and greetings cards, as some people only have a small amount to spend. Art needs to be accessible and one of the key aims is to cater for everyone. If you’re producing work that nobody can enjoy because it's too expensive, then what's the point?
