Joh’s paintings are intuitive expressions and story telling through the use of imagery. She paints animals and people and anything that comes out of her mind. Her paintings are colourful depictions of experiences and everyday thoughts and emotions. Joh paints using many layers on the canvas – she uses acrylic, chalk and pen on canvas.

Joh completed a Bachelor of Contemporary Arts with Masters in 2007 at the University of Tasmania – Inveresk School of Art. She lived in Queenstown for many years where she painted in her studio and now resides in Launceston where she is currently painting for her upcoming solo exhibition at Gallery Pejean. The West Coast will always hold a strong place in Joh’s heart – the ruggedness, the beautiful mountains, the wild weather – a completely unique and breathtaking place.
