Born in 1952 - Canada


Joanne Corno studied at the University of Quebec in Montreal where she obtained a BA in Fine Art turning to a full time painting career in her early 20s. Her first representation was at the Clarence Gagnon Gallery in Montreal.

By the late 1980s, she had become the darling of Montreal collectors and one of the most sought-after Quebec artists. Her reputation was quickly growing across Canada with shows in Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary and Vancouver. She was the featured artist at the Quebec Pavilion at Expo 86 in Vancouver which propelled her visibility to new heights. During this period and into the early 90s, she was represented by Yves Laroche Gallery and was becoming one of the most well-respected Canadian artists.

With a strong market in Canada, Corno turned to the US and had shows at the Morgan Gallery in Boston and San Diego State University. But New York City was an irresistible magnet, so she moved there in 1992. To jump start her career, she participated in group shows and various art events. Following in the footsteps of O'Keefe and Dali, she was the featured artist at the prestigious Steuben Glass. Things just kept getting better and better!

The new millennium brought Joanne Corno to Opera Gallery in NYC which began representing her work worldwide. In a few years, she became their best-selling contemporary artist. Her work is now on permanent display in all their prestigious locations: Paris, London, Monaco, Singapore, Venice, Geneva, Miami, Hong Kong, Seoul, and Dubai.

Playing a balancing act of high energy dichotomies that stimulate the imagination and throw the viewer off balance, her new expressionist style superimposes itself over underlying intricate figurative details. The resulting fusion has a contemporary resonance and appeal. A superb colorist, she incorporates intense textures into her surfaces and uses bold brush strokes.

Joanne Corno’s works can be found in museums, corporate collections and private collections all over the world. In 2009, she was chosen by MORE MAGAZINE to be among the Top 40 over 40women in Canada. Chatelaine Magazine included her in their list of the Top 100 Women in Quebec. After much hard work, she never takes her success for granted and encourages young artists to follow their dream because sometimes... dreams really do come true
