Joan Blond Artist

Artist Statement

Joan is an abstract expressionist and contemporary artist based in the Yarra Valley, Victoria.

After working in the legal profession for 25 years Joan Blond returned to her first love of painting and is mostly self taught. Her creative side was nurtured by her Mother who also shared her love of drawing & painting.

Joan loves painting generous blocks of colour and her style is vibrantly expressionistic, often incorporating energetic line work. She is creatively motivated by her surroundings and also takes many cues from contemporary design and her love of interior design. Joan works successfully with homeowners and designers who are looking for paintings with a custom colour scheme.

Joan mostly paints using acrylics with substance which add texture to her work,  and also loves experimenting with different mediums & washes.

Joan Blond has had numerous group and solo exhibitions and her paintings are held by private collectors throughout Australia, New Zealand, USA, Germany and Hong Kong. Her work has also been featured in popular magazines such as Home Beautiful and House & Garden. In 2018 she was featured in the TV series The Block.
