Artist Statement: JoAnn Dowe

I have found the process of abstract painting using mixed media to be profound and healing. I am able to tap into a deep part of my soul, my highest self. Often, powerful healing energy gets accessed, when I create, and it is embedded into the art.  I believe that this energy continues to do its work through the paintings.


My art is influenced not only by my journey within, but by my journeys abroad. Costa Rica, the American southwest, Ireland, Africa, Mexico, and Maine’s coast and mountains are some of the places that inspire me to create.  I connect deeply with the earth, the elements, and the ancient beings that once occupied the lands.


I work with natural materials that ask to be included; birch bark, driftwood, branches, stems, lichens, leaves, feathers, berries, mica, stones, shells, seaweed, and sand. Their healing energy becomes part of the work. I also use many different recycled and repurposed materials that are part of life’s daily activities.


I am constantly trying out new textures and ways to do things. I am excited for you to see what I am offering.


If you are connecting with any of the soul paintings, please reach out, I would love to create something special for you.
