Joann Little was raised on a farm in Vernon, and attributes her interest in colour and form to the animals, lakes and hills of the Vernon area. She is a member of the Kalview Group of Painters, the NOFCA, the Federation of Canadian Artists and enjoys watercolour and acrylics. Her interest in painting people and animals portrays a strong emotional link to the viewer with the use of complementary and contrasting colours, motion and story. Her favourite medium is watercolour with results that are bright and pleasing. Her work can be found at the annual Kalview Group of Painters Art Show held at the Vernon Art Center.
