NEW! Solo exhibition:

“TRUE COLOURS”

November 6th – 14th 2021, Westbury Arts Centre, MK. www.westburyartscentre.org.uk/events

Observing colour is an intense experience for me; each variation in hue resonates so that I hear, taste and feel the subtleties. Conversely, sounds, tastes and emotions have colour.

Only fairly recently have I come to realise this is something called “synaesthesia”.

Although my art isn’t about this, this is the way I see – and because I work almost exclusively from life – it adds another layer of meaning, particularly when making portraits and allegorical pieces.

This exhibition brings together a selection of my most vibrant paintings in oils and watercolours:

If you wish to make an appointment to come and view the exhibition during the week, please use the contact page (above right) to get in touch.

I look forward to seeing you there!

And the Sun Shone!

Here is a portrait of lovely Emma, made in a friend’s garden on a warm day just as Autumn was making the trees dance…

In The Garden, by Joanna Stone. Pastel pencils, 30 x 40 cms.

The picture was made from life in one sitting of approximately 4 hours, – then the background, dress and hair were finished off in the studio from a photograph.
