Joanne Radmilovich Kollman is a Northwest oil painter; her representational paintings of the figure, landscape and still life are earmarked by a lyrical style and unique eye for design. Brushwork and use of broken color elicit movement and spontaneity in her paintings. As a representational alla prima oil painter, her surroundings are her motivation to explore her subjects with the expressive quality of oil paint. She strives to capture the energy in her work through brushwork and observation of changing light. Joanne paints daily from the model, still life, or landscape.Joanne has been awarded numerous grants through the Regional Arts and Culture Council. She teaches and exhibits at The Elisabeth Jones Art Center and Oregon Society of Artists. Her floral paintings are distributed nationally to galleries and have juried into several American Impressionist exhibitions including the Salmagundi Club in New York 2019 and the most recent, the AIS 21st Annual National Juried Exhibition opening at the Illume Gallery of Fine Art in St. George Utah October 2020.
