Gifts of Art presents Botanical Watercolors
Local artist, teacher and floral painter Joanne Porter has always been inspired by the seasonal variations in the garden. In her watercolors, she captures the freshness of spring, the warm palette of summer and the crispness of fall. Using many layers of watercolor paint, Porter conveys the delicate movement of the flowers as well as their richness of color. Her educational background includes a BFA and MFA from the U-M School of Art & Design, and her work has been in one person gallery shows and on permanent display in hospitals, businesses and schools throughout southeastern Michigan.
