Joanne Meurer Designs
I am Joanne M. Meurer, a Fine Artist, and an Entrepreneur. My recent work took an exciting eccentric turn when I moved from traditional oil landscapes to the freedom of acrylic mixed media. This new direction has allowed me to be free from the confines of oils, which are more methodic, and take longer to see an end result. What's true for me right now is the need to create, go deep and use music and the medium to guide me. I love the spontaneous results that come from intuitive painting because it's freedom, and that's what I am after.
I am blessed to have shown my work in art galleries in Brooklyn, New York, and Virtual Galleries in NYC; I'm also honored to have sold some originals. Last summer, a well-known composer and pianist found one of my pieces, "Neon Garden at Night," on Instagram. He contacted me and asked if he could compose a piece during a live performance. It was truly amazing to watch him look at my painting and translate it into music.
The first time I showed a friend one of my pieces called "My Mirage," and she said it looked like a pillow. I was HORRIFIED; I thought that meant it wasn't a serious piece of art. I had to sit with this for a bit before I realized there may be more opportunities for people to enjoy my artwork by turning these intuitive paintings into items that everyone can enjoy.
That is how JoanneMeurerDesigns was born.
