Joanne Collins Captures the Beauty of Nature on Century Old Wood

Introduction

  I paint North American wildlife on reclaimed lumber.  Sizes vary,       and each piece is one-of-a-kind.  Many of my pieces have a live       edge; the wood is prepared only as much as is necessary leaving     the interesting and historic quality of the ancient wood intact.  In       addition to my reclaimed lumber collection, I paint on antique             cupboard doors, masonite framed in old wood and antiqued paint     styles.  I have also completed a pen & ink collection of prints; some    are limited editions.

Approach

"My love of nature and the creatures that abound in my northern Ontario environment is evident in my work.  I try to capture the character, tenderness, and sometimes the fierceness I see in the critter I am painting. I definitely lean towards a 'romantic' rather than a 'realistic' approach to painting wildlife."
