Excellence in Art


Joanna Mersereau has established a long career in innovative watercolors with her continuing fresh view of wide ranging subjects. “Each painting is my challenge to find an approach that will pair my experience and skill to creativity—a new way that uses my imagination to lift an ordinary subject into ‘out of the ordinary’.”

Mersereau’s dedication to watercolor is longstanding as one of the founders of Watercolor West. Since then she has won signature membership in the American Watercolor Society, the epitome of excellence in the water media world.  Her awards are numerous. Her paintings have found homes around the globe as well as in permanent collections of museums.

It’s exciting to try new color combinations, changing an ordinary horizontal land or seascape into a vertical (layers) or going wild with complements (example: red for trees, orange for skies

“I strive to push my next painting to levels above what I have just completed. If I am successful, someone will be connected emotionally. As it is, when I’m painting I truly touch the depths of who I .am.
