The exhilaration and tension of applying paint to a canvas or paper thrill me. To take empty, void space and see color and line that flow from the mind and deepest emotion is something I wish everyone could experience. I paint because I can. I paint to not just see color, but experience it. I paint to release. I paint to inspire others to see, feel, and dream deeper. #ipaint
Hi, my name is Joanna McGuffey. While my formal training and education is Art with painting emphasis, I paint because it is part of who I am. It's just as much a need mentally, emotionally, and spirituality as exercise is mentally and physically. Oils, acrylics, watercolor and collage are my specialties. The world is filled with more color, line, and texture than most see throughout their day. One of my passions is to inspire others to experience the world in a deeper way. For two decades I have shared my passion for art and painting through commissioned and noncommissioned works and through teaching in Washington DC, Los Angeles, and Dayton. After years of military moves, my family of seven (including our big fluffy dog) is enjoying some stability. In-between driving a ballerina, an upright bass player, and a runner all over the city and training others to think and work outside of the box, one can find me in my studio making a beautiful mess.
