Joanne Lomas

  • About

    Joanne is long time resident of the Simcoe County area. She currently resides in Alliston, Ontario. A BFA graduate with honours from Georgian College and Thompson Rivers University she is able to devote all her time to exploring and making art.

     In whichever media she chooses Joanne looks to mundane images in her immediate surroundings to connote her perspectives of comfort, discomfort and the uncanny. She reinterprets the banal experiences of everyday life, sometimes with an unconventional depiction. The works she creates may appear distorted and abstracted. They explore other dimensions in sight and time. Though much of what she creates has an unconventional feel she is also an avid En Plein Air painter of more traditional scenes.
