Joanne Thorpe

Raised in New England, Joanne Thorpe has always appreciated nature. She specializes in landscape painting. Many of her works are from her travels in and around Oregon where she is currently proud to call home. She places emphasis on composition and often uses her own photos as references. She also enjoys painting En Plein Air in good weather.

Joanne has always appreciated the arts in many f...orms including dance, photography and design. It wasn't until her children were grown that she picked up a paintbrush and fell in love with the fine arts. She started with watercolor and finally switched to oil painting in 2012 after retiring and moving to Oregon.

Joanne is constantly challenging herself to improve by taking workshops from well-known artists, gaining ideas and techniques that shape her own individual style. Her artistry is not limited to landscapes as she often enjoys painting still lifes, animals and urban scenes. Framing is of utmost importance to her in matching frame to a painting or vice versa. She is so grateful to finally be able to devote full time to her artistic endeavors.

A Splendid Day in the Gorge Fine Art by artist Joanne Thorpe - Description: The Vista House is seen so dramatically from the Woman's Forum which is one of the best stops to view the majestic Columbia River Gorge. My photo reference was taken at the most perfect time of day when the sun was setting and the light was so pleasantly moving in and out of the clouds.
