Welcome to Jo Allebach Fine Art
As an artist, I strive to create art that is a unique expression of who I am, and what I know and love. My art is my passion and a celebration of life on canvas. I feel a magic goes into some paintings. I don't truly understand it but can feel it nonetheless. Taking the familiar and creating my own personal vision keeps me focused on the important things in life.
The Marcie's series is magic. I feel it and have other people respond as if they feel the magic too.
Painting large scale paintings of everyday objects gave me an opportunity to develop the gradations and textures that we normally take for granted.
Being born into a military family gave me plenty of opportunity to see the country as we moved quite frequently. I last lived in Maine before moving to Phoenix in 1996. I consider Phoenix my home since I have lived here longer than any place else in my life and I love the sunshine.
Even though I have had an interest in art all my life, my life took on many careers along the way. I have only been painting in earnest since 2002 and I paint landscapes and still life. I have not had formal art training but have taken some workshops and classes at Scottsdale Artists' School and Sedona Art Center.
I hope my art will resonate in the observers’ memory so that the process of recollection becomes a dialogue with the image to solidify a relationship where the viewer is desirous to have it on a permanent basis.
I do not intend to shock, shake or upset anyone looking at my work; I just share my visual interests and my passion for the arts. I believe it is the artist’s mission to make one look “again” at the marvels of our world, to make one stop and contemplate, think, dream, and imagine.
