Artists Profile
Joanna Karpay, a Tampa native and award winning artist, has been painting since childhood. She began her first serious studies as a child at the Tampa Art Institute and went on to study at the University of South Florida and Highland College in Northern Illinois. She continues to expand her painting skills by attending workshops taught by well known artists such as Elin Pendleton, Deborah Paris, Marsha Savage, and Greg Barnes.

The past 2o years have been spent as a successful full-time muralist, taking her talent around the United States and England. Currently, she is focusing on her fine art works.

After becoming proficient in oils, acrylics and pastels, her medium of choice is oil painting, using the Florida landscape as her main subject. As a sixth generation Floridian, many of her paintings reflect her love of the natural beauty found here in our state.

Inspired by the tropical colors and shapes, she is known for her bold brushwork, vibrant colors and strong compositions.

The practice of plein air painting is key to her ability to capture the light and essence of what she sees. The main goal for Joanna is to evoke the special feeling of her favorite places and paint memorable scenes for others to connect to and enjoy.
