About Joanne

Joanne is perhaps the only art tutor in the world that teaches budding artists how to paint expressive, contemporary watercolours with Brusho®.

She first started to experiment with the little-known paint medium 4 years ago and instantly fell in love its unpredictable, eye-catching properties. She realised that not only did Brusho® allow her to create images with a vibrancy unlike anything else, it also forced her to keep things loose and impressionistic - a style that has seen Joanne's work sold in major department stores and exhibited in galleries throughout the UK.

Seeing the appeal it would have to both complete beginners and experienced watercolorists, Joanne set up Brusho® painting classes in her local area. The word spread. Class sizes grew. They became her most popular events.

In Brusho® Secrets, with her naturally friendly down-to-earth style, Joanne lays out her complete step-by-step Brusho® painting method.


Joanne is such a wonderful teacher. Her enthusiasm is infectious and approach takes the complex and makes it accessible to all.
