Joanne Stramara - Water Media


Joanne was born in rural Pennsylvania and moved to Florida in 2006 to capture the sea, sky, flora and fauna of the area. She is happiest studying, sketching, and painting. Joanne studied art at Kutztown University and Wyomissing Institute, and with many local and national art instructors.  Her favorite medium is watercolor, and her love of experimentation coupled with an explosive use of color creates a unique style.  She is a signature member of Suncoast Watercolor Society and one of the co-owners of Sea Grape Gallery in Punta Gorda.  Her artwork has won many awards in Southwest Florida and is in collectors’ homes everywhere, from Nova Scotia to the Florida Keys. Joanne spends her time creating and teaching in Charlotte and Sarasota Counties.
