Welcome to my new website!

One of my goals for 2014 was to develop a new website to be a ‘shop front’ for my work. During July and August, I have been working closely with Lesley, David and the team from The Front Room Marketing and Design who have been paramount in helping me build this wonderful new website with an ecommerce function giving everyone access to a magnified view of the detail in my work. We have created a book showing the highlights of my career to date as an artist and I am delighted to introduce you to ‘Joanna’s Journey’ giving you snippets of my work and how I have grown with the support of celebrities, my shows and the precious charities I have worked with over the years. I have included some sketches of my work outlining some of the processes I follow to create a painting, or a series of paintings to compliment the interiors of gorgeous homes across the globe. Please note, only a few pages of my latest work are displayed but the construction of this book continues over the next month – we will add more as soon as we can, so please stay tuned. I hope you enjoy my new website and I would love to hear your feedback. Please email me on joanna@joannamay.com or Facebook / Twitter me at Joanna May Artist.

Art and Interiors Show, Wiltshire

Earlier this year I was delighted to host a show with Paul Martin, the presenter from BBC’s ‘Flog It’, talking about ‘incorporating modern interiors with contemporary art’. This was a connection with my work and the wire sculptures of Rachel Ducker and how they complete and complement modern interiors in, for example Steven Graver’s award winning kitchens. Unveiled at the show were two different pieces, but a new style of my work.  An image is created using a word repeated over and over again building up and representing the figure in a monochrome type object. ‘Hare-kin’ the hare sold immediately. The other piece, ‘Roar’ is made up of the word Roar used over and over again to form shading. Also released at the show was a young prancing Zebra against a striking red background across two canvasses which sold; and responding to client feedback, I produced three smaller original leopards in pink, white and cerise red. The show was attended by 100 people visiting our home in Wiltshire on a sunny spring day. Following the PR from this show, I made great contacts with those that attended and many that couldn’t because of other commitments and the sale of paintings and prints has been fantastic. I have enjoyed engaging with the people that connected with me on my Facebook page and follow me on Twitter. If you are not already connected with me, then I hope you do to keep up to date with the progress of my latest work.  I look forward to seeing or hearing from you soon.
