… Jo-Neal writes: “My art is about what touches my heart and piques my interest.” Jo-Neal has been painting in watercolors for the last 23 years and has been a teacher for more than 30 years. When she began to paint, she returned to school so that she might teach art/painting. She studied at local colleges in Santa Cruz county and then headed to Florence, Italy where she spent the better part of a year studying at a private art school. When she took an early retirement nearly six years ago, she had been teaching art/painting for the last 12 years. She is new to this part of the central coast, having moved here from Santa Cruz County this past July. She participated in SLO county Open Studios in October and from this experience she met the students who are now studying with her at her home in Nipomo. Jo-Neal enjoys painting a variety of subject matter but is especially drawn to nature. She loves color and strives to create drama in her work by pushing values to extremes. She will share examples of some of her work, speak of her inspiration and demonstrate techniques she applies in her work.
…And a word from Art Central’s Lauren Birkhahn, an extremely talented artist and a capable teacher in her own right! … “Hello Artsy folks! I went to Jo Neal Boic’s demo with the Atascadero Art Association a few weeks ago. I was curious about her techniques after I saw images of her outrageously vibrant, expressive yet controlled watercolor paintings. She has a lot to share about her materials, techniques, resources, and how when where why she paints! She uses watercolor in a precise yet dynamic way. I was charmed by her practical and at-ease presentation. I really recommend you come out for her demo!” Signed: Art Supply Obsessed, Lauren
