Joanne Kouwenhoven

My paintings are mostly inspired by my surroundings and the organic patterns of nature. I enjoy walking in the wilderness that surrounds us in New Zealand and this is shown in my work which is often abstracted landscapes.  However for a bit of variation I do enjoy a little foray into still life now and again.  

I really enjoy exploring art exhibitions both nationally and internationally and am continually amazed at the range of creativity I see in other artists.  I believe everyone has artistic skills if they allow themselves the luxury of personal expression. 

I have been painting mostly in oils for a number of years now and am surprised everyday that there is still more to learn.
