About my work

Joanna is drawn to capturing the non-urban visual makeup of Ontario. Through living near Lake Ontario and her weekend travels throughout the year into rural Ontario, she is drawn to landscape and how its elements change from season to season. During her 15 years of being a landscape photographer she has discovered how the use of horizon lines and negative space in a photograph can evoke a connection to a place for a person who’s been there or somewhere similar before. There is often a nostalgic reaction to her photographs reminding people of a place and a time when they felt happy and calm.

To create her artwork Joanna has her photographs printed on canvas, she stretches them onto a wooden stretcher, she then frames them in Ontario barn board. By printing her photographs on canvas it allows her to avoid having glass in front of them. Without glass there aren't reflections to distract from the image so they almost look like a view out of an open window. 

Having a tough time deciding?

If you have a space that you're looking for a piece of artwork for you can send me a straight-on photo of the space and I can mock up any of my pieces that you are interested in into the photograph. This not only helps you to envision the artwork in the space, it also helps to determine the right size for the space (please note, there are limitations to size).

Limited Editions

Each photograph is part of a limited edition. I stamp the edition number on the back of the piece.
