Joanne Mahoney, Artist
- Childhood holidays were spent at beaches with her family or Wellington, visiting art galleries with an aunt.
- Her husband has been surfing for many years so Joanne has spent countless hours beachcombing and enjoying the beauty of the coastal foreshore in New Zealand, Africa, Asis and the Pacific Islands.
- Learning Chinese Brush painting techniques while living in Singapore encouraged her to experiment and follow on a painting journey.
These things have all lead to a passion for colours, patterns, the beauty of the world around her, especially all things coastal.
