Joan Metcalf Biography

I've always been intrigued with nature's high drama...crashing waves against a rocky coast, a display of colored leaves in autumn, and especially, the many shapes and colors of flowers and leaves. My paintings of large-scale florals, gardens, and landscapes all reflect my fascination with the lush images provided by the natural bounty in the Pacific Northwest. Rivers glimpsed through trees, mountains, forests, gardens and koi ponds are all painted with an emphasis on bursts of color flowing across the composition. Recently, I've become fascinated with creating fantasy panoramas, combining several scenes in Oregon. I received my B.A. in painting from the University of Washington in 1960 and have been painting professionally and exhibiting my work in Northwest galleries since then. My mediums have included oils, watercolors, acrylics, and mixed media pieces with wood carvings. My painting techniques have changed and evolved over the years and currently I am painting with slow-drying, transparent acrylic paints. This medium has allowed me to use both my watercolor and oil painting experiences to build up the colors with several layers to give me vibrant colors. Since I prefer painting large canvases, much of my work is collected by corporations and institutions for their boardroom, reception area and lobby. My paintings are in numerous private and public collections, internationally, nationally, and locally, including Nike, Reser's Fine Foods, Boise Cascade, Tektronix, Inc. plus several financial institutions and many hospitals.
