Roche Joan

Following her post graduate degree in Fine Art from the Royal Academy Schools, Joan Roche lectured in art in London.  A regular contributor to the Royal Academy Summer Shows, Joan has exhibited widely, notably in Florence, New Delhi and Australia. She is constantly alert to new possibilities to drive her work forward, stating: 'A concern for process is a central feature of my work, the journey from observation through to completion, giving the work its unique structure.' Many of Joan Roche's paintings reflect an 'atmosphere of place', an emotional response to certain spaces, enhanced by the context of the isolated human figures that appear within them.
