Joan Appel - artist
I am both a professional musician and artist. I experience life as having order as well as disorder through sound and sight. I create art along with music. The execution of the painting therefore becomes a personal performance, as were my song recitals when I was singing professionally, the one difference being: I am not interpreting someone else's poetry - I am creating my own in color and shape.
Joan is a professional artist working in mixed media, monotypes, oils and alcohol inks. She lives on the South Shore of Boston in Marshfield, Massachusetts. Her works are shown in galleries in New England and nationally and have received local and national awards.
