About the Artist
Joanna was born in 1946 in Perth, Western Australia.
A strong and passionate commitment to exploring the human condition in all of its intrigue and complexity has always formed the basis of Joanna Lefroy Capelle's professional art practise. Her highly individual 'peoplescapes' reflect her extraordinary response to colour, her observational skills and her sense of humour - all legacies of her powerful Australian heritage. The sensitivity and perception of her vision is just as evident in her expressive charcoal or resin drawings as it is in her eclectic oil or watercolour compositions and her larger-than-lifesize murals etched into damp cement render. Joanna Lefroy Capelle is represented in public, private and corporate collections throughout Australia, and in New Zealand, France, United Kingdom, United States of America, Canada, Greece and Spain.
