The importance of the river as a metaphor for life and change is constant in the artist’s paintings. Water, is also a place of reflection. The river takes Joanne back to the hardships of her early life living on the banks of the Maranoa River in Mitchell, through her journey to the present with her family based now in south-east Queensland.
Her paintings speak of the river as a living entity, the rippling lines of the surface mimic the flow of water, or eddies of air and light. As subtle reflections of different events in her own life, these lines merge to provide a place of contemplation for the viewer on our own course of life.
