About Joanne

Joanne Nam is orginally from Korea and currently lives and works in Los Angeles. She is a recent graduate from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA.

Joanne describes her work by saying, “I mainly use oil paints when I create images. Most of subject matters of my paintings are from old memories. I used to live in a middle of forest and spent a lot of my time with wild trees and animals when I was young. However, I avoided reproducing simple images of those memories. The thing I was focusing on was the impression of them. The visual images in my head were vague and hard to tell, but I believed that the feeling of it was the thing that lasts.”

"I don't like what she did with the mouths and noses, and the complexion is a little to....vampire-ish for me"

"I, too, enjoyed the images, but feel that adding titles stifles the viewer's interaction with them."

"I also am korean! love your works!!!"


"sensual and gorgeous"


"Very competent craftsmanship, but, the images are consistently cold, aloof, alien and uninviting. I am afraid that constant contact with one would counteract my medication."

"looks awsome"
