Bio

Atlanta based artist, Juanita Bellavance, uses her mastery
of color and technique to create nature-inspired paintings
that provide solace from life’s strife and turmoils. Her art is
informed by her study of music and her connection to spirit.

Beginning art-making later in her life, Juanita is largely
self-taught and is inspired by masters such as Diebenkorn,
J.M.W. Turner, Giorgio Morandi, William Thon and others.
