ARTIST JOAN A BROWN
— Artist Statement —
A Brief…Brief History
My name is Joan A Brown. I am a Self-Representing Visual Artist and certified Life Skills Coach. I enjoy using my skills for the purpose of enhancing the lives of others.
I have a passion for new experiences and passing that knowledge along to others. As such, I have acquired several accolades during my life, including certificates in Early Childhood Development, Makeup Artistry, and Graphic Design. I recently graduated from George Brown College with a Certificate in Life Skills Coaching. My goal is to use these acquired skills and experiences to help individuals empower themselves and reach their goals.
Acting is a “secret’ passion of mine. I auditioned for and was select as one of the participants in Dove’s “Beautiful Age” Campaign in 2014.
I’ve represented myself as an amateur contemporary artist while teaching beginner oil painting classes at various venues, including at-home studio, Michaels Arts & Crafts and through various workshops.
“I try not to limit myself when it comes to expressing myself as a visual artist. I follow my bliss and enjoy anything that allows me the freedom to express myself through various mediums such as drawing, painting landscapes, flower paintings, watercolor, producing and editing videos, websites, and other similar interests.”
I’ll Take Being Different Over “Fitting In” Any Day
I am obsessed with Photoshop, video production and video editing. I spend much of my free time making art (painting, drawing) and applying those to video for use on my websites, social media, and commission work.
I enjoy esoteric subjects, reading self-help and ‘new-age” books, the Tarot, and walking after dark. I’m also very proud of my Jamaican Heritage, and that’s why I allow myself to have a little fun with my “alter-ego I call, “Yuh Mussy Mad videos!
Other activities that keeps me in my vortex are: listening to my favourite tunes, being around animals, and my passionate for cooking.
I currently facilitate creative workshops online, at VAB (visual Arts Brampton) and through private home lessons. My creative works are acquired and collected worldwide through various painting auctions (eBay) and through this website’s online store.
