Artist
Joyanna Margo Rockport, Maine

Artist Joyanna Margo presents a playful view of the nature around her home in her vibrant abstract flower paintings. Her Rockport, Maine studio is small and bright, surrounded by flowers and art supplies that inspire her. Joyanna's paintings begin with meaningful words, usually lyrics, scrawled on the canvas. The painting grows and develops with acrylic paint applied with brushes and palette knives, "with as little logical planning as possible," until a bouquet forms from the resulting riot of colors. "My bouquets reflect joy, and the story they tell is that joy can grow from any beginning - whether sad, happy, angry or empowered. It is interesting to note that the negative space in my paintings is added in after the colors. The positive comes first." In the rare cases when she is not painting, you can find Joyanna cooking, hiking, gardening, grabbing coffee with a friend or reading with her cat.

    Artist Statement

    I draw inspiration from the mountains, forest and sea, but paint intuitive florals. I am a mixed media, negative space, abstract floral artist. I show and teach the method I developed at galleries and art centers in midcoast Maine. My vibrant, intuitive paintings begin completely abstract and gradually take form as they progress. The final stages in negative-space painting take the longest, as random patterns and colors are crafted into a chaotically balanced bouquet, bursting with life. I paint with acrylics and various water-based media, at times incorporating collage. While I continue to create my florals, I am branching out to other genres both abstract and representational, with the same depth of layering and intuitive, bright spirit.
