Working primarily in acrylic and watercolor, Joanne particularly enjoys painting portraits of family, friends and pets, and the challenge and beauty of figurative work.

“I love playing with color, light and shadow in an attempt to portray movement in my paintings, and hopefully also capture the personality of my subjects.”

Joanne is active in several local arts organizations, including the Mobile Art Association, the Watercolor and Graphic Arts Society, and the Alabama Miniature Art Society. She has shown her work at the Space 301 Gallery, the University of Mobile, the Eastern Shore Art Center and the Mobile Museum of Art, as well as local alternative art venues. Her work can also be seen at the Cathedral Square Gallery artists’ cooperative.
Joanne is currently working on a series of cow portraits. She also enjoys painting with a local plein air group and the Downtown Figure Group.

Frances is a native of Mobile, Alabama and has been drawing and painting for as long as she can remember.  Frances received a formal education with a B.S. degree but longed to pursue art.  She has studied art throughout the years. With the guidance and coaching of her teacher and mentor she has taken a more serious approach to her work.  Frances is inspired by a vast assortment of subjects and feels that her paintings are a way of preserving all things in nature and life.  She finds painting both enjoyable and fulfilling.  Painting, to Frances, is a reflection of the spirit within.

Denise Inge is a native Mobilian and attended 12 years of parochial school there. Her childhood summers consisted of “crabbing and soft shelling” down the bay at her cousin and her great aunts’ homes, sleeping on the “sleeping porch” and waking up to fried soft shell for breakfast…vacations at “the Gulf” and she and her brothers and sisters swimming in the bay because her “mother felt it was safe because it was shallow!” She is the proud mother of one daughter and “The Mimi” to two grandsons.

“ Loving watercolors, I started on my journey in 2002 and the
watercolors have been doing their own thing ever since…allowing me to grab on to “their” coat tails for the ride of my life…all the time being inspired by the beauty of my beloved Mobile and the South!”
