Joan Owensjoaninevergreen@msn.com

After retiring from a career in Education, award winning artist Joan Owens started oil painting nine years ago as a hobby.  She has taken classes from the Sahli School of Art, Foothills Art Center, Center for the Arts Evergreen and the Art Students League of Denver. 

Sparkling light and rich, joyous colors are characteristic of  the artist’s oil paintings.  Her work includes still life, landscape and wildlife subjects.  Many of her landscapes and wildlife paintings are based on scenes from around her Evergreen, Colorado home. 

Joan’s still life entry won Best of Category in her very first show at the Foothills Art Center.  Her painting, “Looking West,” was based on a view from the patio at her home.  It was selected as the “Mountain Connection” cover art for their May 2010 edition. 

The artist’s work has been shown at the Foothills Art Center and Mount Vernon Country Club in Golden, CO; at the Center for the Arts Evergreen, Rotary Gallery and  Shadow Mountain Gallery in Evergreen, CO; and at Alpine Gallery in Denver, CO. 

Joan is a member of Artists With Altitude, the Art Students League Denver and the Evergreen Artists’ Association. 

Joan credits her supportive family and her friends in Artists With Altitude for encouraging her to develop her hobby into a profession.
