Joanna (Starosta) Morrissey
At the young age of fourteen Joanna Starosta (now Joanna Morrissey) discovered the myriad ways of expression through oil painting. Her passion for art finds its origin in her ability to explore her emotions and dreams on canvas.
She is self-employed and a self-taught artist who rediscovered her appreciation of nature during her stay in Italy and Spain. The warmth, light and richness of colours found in Mediterranean has given her a perfect environment to stimulate and increase her love for painting.
While living in Ireland since 2006, Joanna has integrated new techniques into her work which has also enhanced her distinctive style.
"I am lost in an emotional deepness when I paint.
I can only hope that people feel the warmth and love that goes into my paintings when they look at them."
