PierScape Featured Watercolor & Acrylic Artist Jo-Ann Dziubek-MacDonald...


Beginning on Sunday May 6th at 7 p.m. Jo-Ann Dziubek-MacDonald will be the featured visual artist at PierScape's annual celebration of the arts.  This weeklong festival celebrates artists local to Cape Breton Canada.  The exhibit hours will be Monday May 7th to Friday May 11th between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. and Saturday May 12th between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m..


For additional information, please visit http://pierscape.ca/ and to see their article on her, please visit http://pierscape.ca/jo-ann-dziubek-macdonald/.



Jo-Ann resides in Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada and while I have not had the pleasure of meeting her in person, I have had the honor of knowing her through her art and her involvement in an online art group we are both members of.


Her art is moving to me on many levels.  She combines lost and found edges with a great delicacy.  Her willingness to let the fluid interplay of water and pigment make their own statement on the page yields soft yet powerful results.  It is said that art is a window into the soul of an artist.  Jo-Ann's art is full of warmth and kindness, her generous nature is shared with every piece.


I have included a small samping of Jo-Ann's lovely art here; however, she may also be found at her website http://www.jdmstudios.com/blogfacebook, and etsy.

As Jo-Ann is an inspiration to me, I am linking this with Inspire Me Monday.

Thank you all for the wonderful words! I really appreciate the compliments...Lisa is amazing, isn't she? Thank you so much, Lisa for featuring me! :)

My show went so well, I am thrilled! I sold 4 out of 15 paintings, so I'm very pleased with that. There was a huge crowd there, too! It is such a relief because all my time lately has been so focussed on getting ready for it.

Thank you so much Ramona from the Paper Princess! I love your blog! It is so warm and lots of wonderful bits and pieces.
