JoAnne Houlsen

“From the Real to the Abstract” These images are microcosms of larger paintings I have done in the past. I selected areas of a painting that I felt reflected the larger painting as a whole. The images became quite abstracted, some more than others, in so much as the original image has become obscured.

Her work is diverse and ranges from collage, drawing, mixed media to painting. She holds a MFA from Vermont College of Art, Norwich University and has mentored with many different artists of Maine and New England.
