Joan Scheibel works in layers, working from light to dark. She is often asked about her process which she feels is more than just a process but is a way of life. She sees people and things that move her in life, a shadow, a dance, a church or just everyday events. Scheibel takes these ideas and images and reimagines them on canvas. In her words, "Suddenly and finally, the image that grabbed me, is reconstituted to grab you. The universal eye." Scheibel is a contemporary abstract painter currently living and working in Los Angeles. Scheibel received a full scholarship from the prestigious Otis/Parson College of Art and Design and would later study Illustration at Platt College of Design. Turning her attention inward for a more personal form of expression, Joan has pursued a fine art career for nearly a decade.
