Jo Ann Vandale

My name is Jo Ann Vandale. I love visual arts. Whether it is an acrylic or oil painting , a simple pencil drawing or photograph all of these art forms are an expression of what we see and what those things make us feel. These feeling may be different from person to person which makes them even more interesting.

I have always enjoyed drawing and painting. Creating art gives me great satisfaction. There is a need to really see what we are looking at and not pass through life not noticing the interesting and beautiful things that surround us.

I obtained associates degrees at QVCC, Liberal Arts, Computer Networking and Graphic Design. After completing the Associates Degree in Graphic Design, I decided that I was so close to meeting the requirements to obtain a Bachelors degree that I should pursue that avenue. I obtained a bachelors degree in Graphic Design and Studio Art from Eastern Connecticut State University in the spring of 2016. Some of the courses I completed at Eastern in pursuit of my degree were: Web Design, Fashion Design and Illustration, and Art History I. Photography for Artists, Advanced Drawing and Art Exhibition. Landscape Painting, Sculpture I and Design Group and an independent study focusing on two oil paintings of the Grand Canyon.
