Joanne's painting illustrates the overlooking view from Vancouver's Harbour Centre. The viewpoint is taken in by numerous tourists, but is often overlooked from a local’s perspective. The piece is perfectly titled, "Overlooking the City". Chances are, if you wear any pair in her collection, they will not be overlooked.
Joanne Hastie has always connected with people through her artwork, whether through a school or work project, or through her personal artwork. She's inspired when painting landscapes and cityscapes, especially when she shares her work at art shows. Complete strangers approach and swap detailed stories with her just from an obscure memory recalled by looking at a scene she had painted. To Joanne, art can uniquely connect humans together.
Joanne’s work focuses on landscapes and cityscapes. She regularly paints images of places she has been as they become settings for her memories and essentially who she is as a person. Her process consists of layering many brushstrokes of acrylic paints and glazes until the subject begins to look familiar. The artist’s most recent pieces are of local Vancouver scenes and scenes from her travels in Italy.
