Johanna Girard, Pasadena, California Member Since January 2008 Artist Statement Hello and welcome to my Imagekind website! My name is Johanna Girard, and I am an artist living in Pasadena, California, home of the Tournament of Roses Parade and Art Center College of Design, where I earned my BFA degree in 1986 Illustration.
I specialize in Traditional Realism in Oils and Pastels , using a bright contemporary color palette. My favorite subjects to paint are California and Southwest Plein Air Landscapes, Florals, Still Lifes , Portraiture, Nudes, and occasionally I like to paint Classic Vintage Automobiles too!
My original art studio was located in Pasadena, on Sinaloa Avenue, hence the name of my website: www.studiosinaloa.com. In August of 2009 I opened a larger art studio at 3763 E. Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena, but I kept the name Studio Sinaloa. If you are in the Pasadena area and are looking for art classes for your kids or yourself, check out my website: www.studiosinaloa.com.
