The Artist Says:

The simple beauty of our everyday surroundings compels me to communicate the essence of a scene, subject or experience through time honored traditional painting techniques. I’m exhilarated by working from life and studying subjects in their natural setting. The creamy texture and beautiful colors of oil paints combined with the spring of a brush on fine linen fuel my desire to artfully capture the light, color, atmosphere and spirit of an inspiring subject or scene.
Thank you for allowing me to share my journeys with you through my paintings.


Joni utilizes oil painting to freeze a moment in time and invite the viewer to stop, breathe and allow her artwork to evoke a nostalgic memory and emotion. The subtle colors and intricate compositions presented to us every day in the natural landscape are her muse.  She finds the spirit of her subject by working directly from life with Mother Nature and countless hours of training as her guide.  These influences have also allowed her work to evolve into a distinctive appearance often exuding a feeling of serenity.

Joni’s paintings have been exhibited in galleries across the country, and many pieces reside in private collections.
