Joanne Boyle's Profile
Joanne Boyle is originally from Southeastern Pennsylvania where she experienced small towns, big cities, wilderness and farms. She now travels the country in search of new material and inspiration. Along with her faithful golden retriever, Angie, she explores fern-choked forests, rocky creeks, scree-filled mountain slopes and win-blasted deserts in search of unique material for her art.
As with many artists, Joanne's work has been heavily influenced by her childhood. Her grandmother filled her imagination with the fanciful folklore of fairies, gnomes, woodland spirits and water sprites. Days were spent in the surrounding woods and creeks searching for stones and the ever-elusive fables. She even built wee houses to entice gnomes into the open.
Her grandmother's art studio provided creative outlets when nature wasn't beckoning…
