JOAN ARNOLD COLLECTION
From Greenfield, Ohio
Joan Arnold was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. She relocated to Greenfield, Ohio in the early 1960's. Living in the rural area brought her peace and solitude she could not find living in the city.
Always creative in arts and crafts, she enjoyed such hobbies as growing her own herbs and creating unique and beautiful wreaths. Her true talent however was discovered in 1980, the first time she picked up a paint brush.
She is a wildlife artist who takes the media of watercolors to a higher level with extraordinary detail and precision Although she has painted many different subjects, she is renowned for her painting of sheep. She enjoys working from her own photographs which she takes as she spends countless hours in the fields observing them, She has said that watching these precious lambs interacting with their mothers and each other is a unique experience, almost a sacred time when she feels at one with God. A concept that clearly comes through when you view one of her paintings.
Joan's work has been accepted in many prestigious shows, some of which are: The Ohio Watercolor Juried Exhibition, The Ohio State Fair Fine Arts Juried Exhibition, Southern State Community College, Southwestern Ohio Arts League, Fairborn Art Association Juried Exhibition, Dayton Society of Painters & Sculptors Juried Exhibition, Foothills Art Festival, Leesburg Brush & Palette Guild, Hyde Park Square Art Show, Worthington Art Festival, Penrod Arts Fair and Wyoming Art Show. She has won numerous awards including many Best of Shows.
Joan's work is included in both business and private collections throughout the United States and England. Recently she has made her paintings more widely available by introducing a limited edition of numbered prints.
