JoAnn Dolan was exploring the wonderful world of art at a very young age as her artist mom lovingly used coloring and more involved art demonstrations as entertainment. As JoAnn developed throughout childhood so did her love for art and desire for learning. Therefore, what started as childhood fun evolved into art lessons and a path that would be a lifetime pursuit. Starting out with watercolors and ceramics her current passion is for pastels and oil painting. Even though JoAnn was a successful career woman in the corporate world she managed to make time for art workshops with some outstanding artists providing her inspiration and knowledge for ongoing growth. Having married an army career man she experienced travel in multiple countries which further enhanced her love for art. Born in Oklahoma and now settled in the beautiful northwest with her husband Paul Dolan, she is very fortunate to have his loving encouraging support. With paintings sold in Germany, Arizona, New Mexico, Oregon and Texas, she is thankful for her success. Oregon is now home where JoAnn can find inspiration in abundant natural beauty throughout the northwest landscape. Her path, passion and pursuit continue with excitement as she expresses her style on canvas with an upbeat spirit and noteworthy smile.
