About the artist
Painter Joann Couch trained at Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida, and continued her education at North Carolina State University, and later, Meredith College. Joann worked as a graphic designer, illustrator, agency creative director, and art teacher prior to becoming a full-time painter. Her work has been featured in businesses, organizations, and art galleries, and is included in permanent collections at Duke University, SAS, IBM, Rex and Duke Hospitals, and NC State government.

“My paintings reflect how I see the world around me. Dramatic color and bold shapes are my tools for capturing human emotion. The works of Matisse, the Fauves, and the Bay Area Figurative painters, as well as my early instructors at Ringling, had a strong influence. But it is my own feelings about how we, as humans, interact with the world around us that fuels my work. Underlying all of my art is a sincere optimism and basic faith in beauty and humanity.”
Kinston Swamp | Oil on canvas | 36”H x 24”W
