Born in Salem, MA, Joan Hart graduated from Northeastern University, Boston in 1975 with a B.A. in the Arts. She has been a journalist most of her life writing as a newswoman and columnist for The Tampa Times in Tampa, FL and The Los Angeles Times among many others. She has also studied art throughout the years in California and Texas with several well-known artists.
Hart continues her study of art as a world traveler. She has been selected in many local and national juried shows over the years. Her art has been featured in various galleries and institutes all over California and Texas and Massachusetts. She is an active member of many watercolor societies throughout the country.
Hart's paintings, reminiscent of Fauvism, derive from subconscious memories of places like California, Italy, Mexico and New Mexico. Her style is unique and words cannot describe what the eye sees. Her paintings truly speak for themselves, and to each and everyone, deeply and individually.
