Over the years Joan has developed a keen interest in painting. She has completed many acrylic tole paintings and has participated in craft shows held at the Bathurst High School and at Keddy’s “Le Chateau” in Bathurst.

During the 2003-2004 seasons, Joan started oil painting on canvas with Marie Frenette. “I just love it” she says.

Joan focuses her interest in capturing flowers on canvas and hopes to develop her skills in portrait painting.

Over the past four years Joan has exhibited her work at the Bay Breeze Art Gallery, the Place Bathurst Mall and the Auberge de la Vallee.
