JoAnn is a traditional plein-air painter whose love of color is the driving force behind her paintings. Depending on the subject, her work crosses over the line of representational art into colorful impressionism, using brushstrokes and color to make an emotional impact. Ms. Ritter began art education at Penn State and Syracuse University. She attended the Museum School in Boston and studied with nationally known painters, including portraiture with Clement Micarelli, landscape painting with Don Stone, a member of the National Academy of Art, David Leffel, Charles Sovek and Colorado painters Skip Whitcomb and Kim English. Jo Ann has been recently featured in The American Art Collector Magazine as an artist whose work is highly collectible. She is the recipient of numerous awards and her work is collected internationally. She is affiliated with the Copley Society of Art in Boston, Hudson Valley Art Association, Cape Cod Art Association, Chatham Creative Arts Center and Oil Painters of America.
Jo Ann lives to paint. There is nothing better, she says, than to feel the wind and sun on your face while creating a scene on canvas - scenes from home and faraway places. Her awards include the prestigious Isabella Steinschneider national award from the Hudson Valley Art Association.
