Joanne Parent

  • About
New & Noteworthy Artist

Anytime you look at the ocean, rest assured that the ocean is in fact looking back at you. Such is the case with the body of artwork first envisioned in the mind of Joanne Parent, and realized on canvas. Joanne’s fine art beckons you to contemplate the endless possibilities of nature, a true story of wind and paint. Art, like nature, is a subjective medium. Nobody can deny the ethereal experience of a low winter sunset, or the colors that accompany the fragile introduction of storm clouds meeting the sun on canvas.

Like many coastal Mainers, Parent had a calling for the sea. In 1990, she set sail for nearly ten years. While traveling around the world, she worked in a number of different positions, such as a deckhand and chef. She became an accomplished sailor and acquired her Captain’s license. Along the way, Joanne became an avid scuba diver and surfer, living in a number of magical places, such as Majorca in the Mediterranean Sea, French Polynesia in the South Pacific. She returned to Mid Coast Maine in 2000 and attended the Maine College of Art. In 2000, Joanne opened the Parent Fine Art Gallery on the corner of Main and High St in Belfast, which showcases her fine art and her father Neal’s black and white photographs. She lives with her husband in an off grid timber frame home on a pond in mid coast Maine. There she works in her studio where she creates both sea and landscape pieces which are shown in a number of distinguished galleries along the east coast.
