USA / Born Houston
Joan Bohn is an extraordinarily devoted artist with a sense of style, presentation, and color few artists achieve.
A native Houstonian, Joan lives and works in the city. Houston’s tolerant nature has been a positive influence on her life in how it allows for freedom in her work and expression. She thrives on the energy of this urban environment, and yet, longs for the peace and tranquility she finds during summer visits to the mountains: only to become restless once again for the city. For her it is about balance - in nature as in life. Her philosophy can be summarized by the following: “I live in a city surrounded by tall buildings, commercial development, and all the hustle and bustle that defines “urban”. Within this chaos I strive to find balance, and a sense of place that is derived from the stimulation of the city, redefined, and put to rest in my paintings.”
