JOANNA HARLING

 

WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE

I paint in acrylics and oils and sculpt clay.   I love painting flowers out in the garden and in the wild or inside in a vase, pot or jam jar.  I have nearly 50 years of experience gained by visiting galleries and museums around the world and curling up by the fire with an art book or exhibition catalogue.  I draw on the talents of others to help me to interpret the work I am doing whether it is a landscape, a portrait or still life.  I have studied sculpture in Spain and Britain.  Find out more about click here.


I undertake commissioned work- portraits of adults and children, pets and even farm animals!  I will also paint gardens or other flowers to commission.


ARRAN, SCOTLAND


Since the beginning of the year I have been working on paintings of Arran, in my studio, using sketches, painings, photographs and memories built up over the past 20 years.   I have been inspired and drawn on the paintings and colour pallets of the well-loved Scottish colourists   I am very pleased to be part of Saffron Walden Open Studios this spring and look forward to seeing you on 25/26th April or the 2/3rd May weekends.   Two friends who also frequently visit Arran are exhibiting with me : Nicholas Hopkins and Rob Sykes.  To find out more please go to the Open Studio Inspiration page or the Open Studio Catalogue
