About The Artist

Picture of Joan M. Barnett

Joan Barnett was born and brought up in Derbyshire and later qualified as a pharmaceutical chemist at Leicester School of Pharmacy. She worked for many years in both retail and hospital appointments.

Now living in Sedgley, Joan became interested in painting in 1988 and remained self-taught for the first three years. She then had private tuition from two local professional artists, one for water colour and the other for pastel techniques. She now paints for several hours on most days.

Joan, who is a member of The Wolverhampton Society of Artists, has found great happiness in her painting, enjoying the support of her husband and friends. Several of her watercolours have been published as greetings cards and she now produces her own.

She exhibits her work locally and in galleries on Exmoor.
