About Joan Kennedy Artist

Joan Kennedy artist has created an imaginary world of scruffy dogs, crazy chickens, mice with big dreams and flamingos that look beautiful. As a self taught Irish artist living in the midlands of Staffordshire, she has always loved being creative. 

Using proper artists materials, she works mostly with watercolour, and inks. She enjoys creating vibrant images to make people smile. From a very early age she has loved being creative and always wanted to be an artist. 

Furthermore she is not confined to one particular medium. To help her create a unique style of her own Joan also enjoys painting in oils, inks and various other types of special paints. Drawing inspiration from the countryside around her, and her family and friends as well as her love of animals. Painting seascapes in oils from memories of Ireland, to quirky watercolour animals, she is in the process of launching her Scruffy Dog book due later in October featuring a great big scruffy dog and a mouse with big dreams.
