About Joschi
The Artist
 
Welcome to my website!  My name is Joan Schnuerch.  I am originally from Berlin, Germany, where my nickname was Joschi and is pronounced in English as yo-shee.  Hence, the name of my website and online store, Paintings From Joschi.   Each painting created comes from my heart to be shared with all.
 
I have a degree in Fashion Design which is where I discovered my talents with pencils.  After graduating college, I moved to America where I discovered that art would continue to be an active part of my life.  While first moving to Queens, NY, I took an art course with the Famous Artists School in Westport, CT under the tutelage of Norman Rockwell, Robert Fawcett, Ben Stahl, and others. 
 
It was years later, after raising a family on Long Island, NY, that I moved to the Bradenton/Sarasota area in Florida.  I started to paint more seriously with a heavy focus using oil paints.  While oils were becoming my passion, I also worked with watercolor and acrylics where I further developed my style which is influenced by the Impressionistic artists concentrating on landscapes, seascapes, portraits, and capturing movement in people, especially playful children.   (My grandson was my muse for many portraits our family homes.)
 
Painting for me is how I express and share joy using the views found throughout this beautiful world of ours.  I invite you visit my online gallery and hope that you enjoy seeing the world through my eyes and my works.
