Joan Barrows

Artist Statement

I graduated from college with a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree nearly 40 years ago.

Every painting is a learning experience.

I'm happy to grow, change, discover, start over again, think and learn.

Nature remains the thing I care about the most. I am in a constant state of angst over what we have done and continue to do to our earth and what we subject other living creatures to in the name of our comfort and “advances”.

Sometimes I think I would like to have my art have some important message, a meaningful and contemporary concept to spur thought in it's viewer but I just go back to the beauty and sacredness that I believe is in all living things and do my best to convey that.
