“My Shadow appeared and I started painting. Guess we can never
escape ourselves.”
 

Joan Scheibel is a contemporary abstract painter currently living and
working in Los Angeles. Scheibel received a full scholarship from the
prestigious Otis/Parson College of Art and Design and would later study
Illustration at Platt College of Design. Scheibel established a notable
seventeen-year career within the field of graphic design owning a
business at the forefront of album packaging, branding and
advertising.
 
Turning her attention inward for a more personal form of expression,
Joan has pursued a fine art career for nearly a decade. Her work
quickly earned acknowledgement from collectors, peers, and galleries
throughout California, New Mexico and New York, and she is a
consistent winner of the juried ArtSlant Showcase awards given to
emerging and mid-career artists that exhibit both great potential and
commitment to their practice.
 
In her current ‘Liquid Series’ the evolution of Scheibel’s work is easily
discernible as the fusion of past practice and technique is now met
with certain nuances. The viewer is easily captivated by the movement
and energy of the work, and further engaged by the depth in the often
hidden subtleties.
