More About Joan Beuche
Stornoway Lodge features the original artwork of the resident Wildlife artist JOAN BEAUCHE.
Born and still living in Johannesburg, South Africa, Joan has always been known for the rare quality of her talent as a highly individualistic artist.
Joan studied art at school and completed a course in commercial art before commencing work in a display studio where she gained experience in a variety of media. After marriage and the birth of her first two children, Joan went on to college where she majored in art and graduated with honours.
Joan began painting full-time for reproduction in the commercial market, after the birth of her child. She covered a variety of subjects and styles including portraits, landscapes, still life, illustrations, and flower studies. These were done in acrylic, pastel, water colour and silkscreen. This led to a coveted contract with a publisher for the production of the acclaimed Prestige Wildlife Calendars.
Over the years Joan has developed a highly perceptive interpretation of the African Bush. Her trademark, evident in all her work, is her depiction of the effect of light on natural forms and colours.
Today, Joan has become a world-renowned, award winning wildlife artist. Her originals and prints grace the walls of many corporate boardrooms, African safari lodges, and private collectors here and abroad. Her calendars have brought immense pleasure to wildlife enthusiast everywhere.
Joan’s desire is to awaken an awareness and appreciation for the amazing wildlife of Africa. She works on consignment and also has painting for sale in the Gallery.Should you wish to contact Joan, you can call her on 082 695 9910, or you are also welcome to contact Stornoway Lodge for more information
