Joan Kinghorn

Joan KinghornI have been drawing and painting throughout my life, working at home at weekends and evenings to fit around my career in education. Whilst raising my family, I studied painting through Adult Education classes. After moving to Cornwall in 1987, I studied with the Open College of Arts, qualifying in Art and Design. I develop my work through observational drawing and experimentation, using oils, acrylics or watercolour. The resulting pieces have a touch of abstraction and convey a felt experience.

I am a founder member of the Boscastle Group of artists. I am also the voluntary co-ordinator for the Wadebridge Look Group, a Tate St Ives community project. An Adult Education Tutor, I am currently teaching courses in art.
