Jo-Ann Sanborn has joyfully painted the threatened Everglades landscape since falling in love at first sight in the mid 1990s. The focus of her work is to bring attention to the fragile landscape with strong expressionistic compositions rich with uncommon color. She invites to the viewer to take a breath and become engaged in the natural world and hopes that enjoyment of her work will encourage attention to Everglades preservation.
Her work is enjoyed by international collectors across the United States, Canada, several Europe countries, Scandinavia and Africa. She has been honored with solo shows and numerous awards and is a member of several professional organizations including the National Association of Women Artists. Sanborn loves travel, teaching and holds plein aireworkshops in the Everglades. She lives and works on Marco Island, Florida where she maintains her studio.
