About the Artist

Jo-Ann Sanborn is a nationally recognized Florida Landscape painter. Strong compositional arrangements and uncommon colors bring a simplicity and integrity to the unique Everglades landscape. Sanborn has had a number of solo shows and been granted numerous awards for her work. She hopes that enjoyment of her work will foster a more profound respect for the threatened Everglades landscape.

Artist's Statement

I’m awed by the challenge of painting the simple dignity of a sable palm in dancing light. The bold forms and deep shadows of the Everglades provide constant inspiration. My images are ancient and familiar, palms, prairie, water and clouds. My fondest dream is that one of my paintings will bring beauty and value into your life, and that you will hear the voice of the Everglades through my work.
