I'm Joanne McDougall and I like messing around with pictures. 

While I've been drawing all my life, painting is a newer passion. I use a variety of styles and media and at present am interested in depicting movement through air or water. I am best known for my birds and florals.

Locally, my work can be seen at the Culverden Gallery and id Gallery at the Waikuku Brick Mill. and I usually have a presence at any local exhibitions.

My children's book, "A Southern Tale," was published late 2016. Having spent a year running the Meteorological station on Campbell Island and tripping over sea lions, I was horrified to discover that they'd been put on the endangered list. See the book page on this website for a peek inside. If you cannot source a copy, just email me and I'll pop one in the post.

2018 was my last year running weekly children's art classes. My studio has had a makeover and I will now be running workshops and short courses for various age groups, tackling specific projects. This will allow for more serious tuition - and more holidays.
