After years of not drawing, because of busy family life mainly, I have recently found my passion and excitement again for art. The most exciting commissioned work I have done was a family portrait for Paul Scholes from Manchester United Football Team in 2000. With the help of a new computer I hope to show my work to a much wider audience and at the same time view other artists work. Up to now, I am astounded by the talented people on this site and it has been so inspiring to view! Thanks for taking the time to view my art, Joanne:-)I have recently had my work accepted by the Artrom Gallery in Rome, Italy, http://www.artromgallery.com/guild_directory/g_joannewoolley.htm. if you'd like to take a look. I have recently entered into Wildlife Artist of the year competition, money raised from work sold will go directly to help animals in the wild. I have also done two portraits for Monkey World in Dorset to help raise money for the sanctuary, really pleased I can help, I love apes.
