Joanne Kells Chalmers
Joanne is a professional artist from Cambridge, Ontario, currently residing in Napanee ontario.
Inspired by her grandmother from an early age she has explored this talent while studying with some of Ontario’s finest artists in many different mediums and styles. This lifelong exploration has led to technical refinement and valuable insights.
In 2021. Kells completed an online intensive art course which had her painting /drawing for at least 20 hours or more a week. This course was so valuable because it helped her to discover the mediums and tools she loves to use.
A prolific painter she works tirelessly at refining her process and making new discoveries.
Her use of layers, textures, mixed media and collage help define her artistic voice and make her feel connected to each piece she creates.
“There’s something about using your hands to shape the paper or mediums that feels organic “ she says “it's a tactile experience that comes straight from the gut”
