Joanne Farley-Webb is a painter, art enabler, heart centred maker and Buddhist.
Her art has the power to deepen and transform our ecology and teach us wisdom like slowing down, letting go and awakening energy. Her spiritual practice is entwined with her creative art-making process.
''Only in the last decade have I arrived at a kind of equanimity. I love to chant and sing in Sanskrit when I paint, immerse myself in heart centred teachings and Kirtan music and meditate in my studio. These daily habits have become meaningful to me in unexpected ways, changed my studio to a sacred space, enabled me to transcend an old mindset and created a beautiful ripple effect beyond the art''
In 2020 Joanne co-founded an Arts Council England Art-On-Prescription workshops in Chichester, West Sussex, UK. Working with NHS Primary Innovation Trust Chichester Social Prescribing team she promoted arts and wellbeing in support of mental health wellness in partnership with multiple local and internationally recognised organisations.
After graduating from the Royal Academy Schools, London in 1998 Joanne lived and worked with the Lakota Sioux Tribe and took part in sacred sweat lodge ceremonies. Her work has been exhibited many times and resides in private, British and international collections.
