About Joan – A Staffordshire based artist2019-01-20T23:03:12+00:00

I create work to make the world a better place.

Something for you to cherish, to bring a smile each day
and create your happy home

Wouldn’t the world be a dull place if there was no colour?  My mission is to create wonderful vibrant watercolour pieces. Creating art with that magic splash of bright colour to enrich your life, bringing happiness and evoking memories.

The sheer excitement of seeing a painting develop. Creating something out of nothing.  The character of an animal coming alive and capturing their personalities. I get so absorbed in the moment that time seems to stand still.

Sometimes I spray paint and the light mist of colour accidentally goes everywhere. Filling the studio with colourful magic it can be seen resting in the air through the floodlight window. A light mist of rainbow colour hanging there in the stillness of the moment.

Reminds me of the aura borealis leaving me breathless to clean the drops of paint from my laptop as I look out at the wild birds on the grass.

The Artist’s Journey

I’m a self-taught Irish artist, drawing and painting since childhood. I became a full-time artist two years ago. I love creating and experimenting with paint and inks. It’s what I was born to do. I have been teaching babies and toddlers through music for the past 18 years at http://www.littlehandsmusic.co.uk

Today from my rural studio in the Midlands of Staffordshire in the U.K., I am never short of inspiration.  My love of animals pursues me to paint British wildlife, farm animals and pets.

Selling my artwork all over the world is a true joy for me and one I am eternally grateful for. You will find me regularly at various monthly artisan markets throughout Staffordshire, where I love to meet and chat to the public about my work and inspiration. You can find me at the next event at https://joankennedyartist.co.uk/events/

Creator of “The Scruffy Dog Story”

Isn’t the power of music incredible? How come when we hear a piece of music it evokes an emotion?
We remember the words to a song from years ago.

I have been teaching babies and toddlers through music for over 18 years.
Helping parents with their child’s development and created this music book

I was selected as 1 of 10 businesses to go on a fully funded trip to

Expo China 2018

An incredible moment, and selling my art to the Chinese people has truly been
a moment I will cherish

Brilliant artist. I bought a beautiful painting for my nieces new baby she was delighted with it.
Can’t wait for Joan’s new book I will definitely be buying one or more for gifts and maybe treat myself to something too.
