About Joanne Oddie


After graduating from Loughborough College Of Art And Design with a BA Hons in textile design and art history I became a successful fabric and wallpaper designer/stylist for 'Harlequin Fabrics'



My true passion in life is for animals and nature and since my move to mid Wales fifteen years ago I have become established in animal portraiture.  My portraits are professionally created using a pastel and gouache technique which enables me to create depth to my work with a high degree of detail. This professional technique combined with my love and compassion for animals successfully captures the subjects personality and the result is a timeless reflection of a beloved animal friend.



My background of textile design combined with my present work as an animal portrait artist has led me to illustration work and I have also enjoyed embellishing my imagination by executing a series of contemporary paintings.
