Joni utilizes oil painting to freeze a moment in time and invite the viewer to stop, breathe and allow her artwork to evoke a nostalgic memory and emotion. The subtle colors and intricate compositions presented to us every day in the natural landscape are her muse. She finds the spirit of her subject by working directly from life with Mother Nature and countless hours of training as her guide. These influences have also allowed her work to evolve into a distinctive appearance often exuding a feeling of serenity.
