Joanne Radmilovich Kollman is a Northwest painter whose work ranges from commercial illustration to etchings and oil paintings. For the last twenty years, she has produced hundreds of illustrations for magazines, children’s books, and commercial clients, while maintaining a steady practice in studio painting and graphics. Joanne has a lyrical style and unique eye for design.

Joanne’s whimsical animal etchings have been distributed to galleries nationally through Island International Artists since 2004. These etchings have been an outlet for her creative sense of humor in the human portrayal of domestic animals.

Joanne’s collaboration with PAL Posters began in 2006. This art form involves the interpretation of a variety of subject matter into posters for the international tourist market. The partnership has presented further opportunity to expand her use of design and color.

In 2008 Joanne received a professional development grant through the Regional Arts and Cultural Council of Portland Oregon to attend an advanced portrait workshop in Philadelphia at Studio Incamminati. Joanne works on painting and portrait commissions out of a studio in the historic Troy laundry building in Southeast Portland.

Joanne recently received an artistic focus grant through the Regional Arts and Cultural Council for 2013 figurative works, Northwest neighbors: Who Are We?

Education: BFA Marylhurst University, Art Center College of Design, Pacific Northwest College of Art.
