Joanna Czub is a contemporary Toronto based artist who was born in Poznan, Poland, and currently paints in Toronto, Canada, where she lives with her husband and two young sons. She is a full time artist who holds two undergraduate degrees, one in Fine Arts in Drawing and Painting from Ontario College of Art and Design University, and one in Psychology from University of Toronto. The two degrees combine Joanna’s two passions into a distinctive approach to representing human emotions, thoughts, states of mind, and experiences though a visual medium.
Joanna started drawing and painting at the age of six and has been experimenting with her artistic abilities and approach for over 30 years. Her European-style education and background are a strong influence in her realistic approach to artistic expression, which she combines with a unique subject matter of personal story telling in the hope of connecting with others and their stories. Joanna’s primary medium of expression is oil paint, but she is progressively venturing out into new and exciting territories in order to expand her artistic vocabulary.
