Joanna Burch is a native Texan who grew up along the south Texas shoreline most of her life. As a result, her love for coastal activities found its way into much of her early artistic work. Observing those special moments of interaction with family and friends, through body language and colorful objects of fun and play has inspired her to create wonderful, everyday, scenic images which embody many of her coastal paintings. Joanna strives for interesting shapes and patterns and gravitates toward strong light sources and deep shadows. She hopes to bring wonderful discoveries and adventures to her viewers so that they too may share in the excitement brought about by her art.
