Hi, thanks for viewing my profile.
Unfortunately I can't keep up with Bluethumb at the moment due to a serious illness.
Hopefully I'll be back online at Bluethub early 2019.

A r t i s t S t a t e m e n tBorn in Western Australia, Joanne Duffy uses her combination of a Bachelor of Arts (Design) and self-taught experience to depict the Australian landscape in an Expressionist style. Her paintings draw inspiration from her childhood experiences of rural WA and the love of native flora and its environment. Joanne’s abstract expressionist style explores her interests in our landscape and the emotional responses and memories it evokes within us. Her intense use of colour and sweeping brush marks create a sense of movement within her paintings, evoking glimpses of Australia’s rural landscape. The resulting artworks are reflective, full of vitality, intense colour and emotion. As an award winning artist Joanne’s work is held in private collections through Australia, Singapore, Germany & Malaysia.As well as here on Bluethumb, works can be seen at The Studio Gallery, Yallingup WA, Gallery 360, Subiaco WA, Linton & Kay Galleries, Perth WA and Rochfort Gallery, North Sydney, NSW>Artist Statement"An expressionist at heart, key inspirations for my work lie in interpreting the emotional response to memories of landscape, and how this affects our character. The native flora and ancient landscapes are strong stimuli for investigating our senses’ response through colour, texture and movement. It is these remnants of experience which provides the key for interpretation of both personal and perceived experience."
