Joan Blackburn is a well known Pensacola artist, teacher, juror & judge whose

specialty is watermedia abstracts and transparent watercolor

still life, florals and landscapes.


She considers her florals to be portraits of flowers, and loves to capture the

exciting effects of bright sunlight casting shadows and varying

the beautiful colors on and through the petals

of flowers and glass.

She considers her forte to be in design and composition. This is very evident

in the bold shapes, strong values, vibrant colors and design formats

in her award winning non-objective paintings. She has

taken workshops from some of the most well known

artists and instructors in the country, and

is continually studying and working

to improve her art.

"I paint because I love to be creative, love glorious color and beautiful things.

I like being a part of the art community, and teaching and sharing

with students what Iíve learned through 40 years of

study and experience."


Joan (pronounced Joann) taught classes and workshops at the Pensacola Junior College

Downtown Center in their Continuing Ed Series for 14 years, but retired in

2006 to have more time to pursue her own work, teaching

workshops and serving as a juror/judge of art shows.
