"When I saw Joanne paint the peacock at the North Georgia Revival during worship and praise the Lord told me it was mine. I was even dressed in emerald green and had on gold earrings shaped like the eyes in the feathers. Although there were multiple women asking about the painting, I was the one that the original belonged to! I hung it up that night. The next day the Lord told me to look at it again...."go deep, Christine." As I looked deeper more revelation was given to me. It speaks healing, restoration and prosperity to me. I look forward to the future God has in store for me. Thank you, Jesus!"

"During my journey I kept seeing Jesus in an ocean wave reaching out for me. The faith to know that even though I can not jump high enough to see above the wave, or have the ability to see around the wave, Jesus is still on the other side...FAITH!! Thank you, Joanne, for bringing my vision to reality!"

"This artist has been divinely lead to share her gift with all who have the privilege experiencing her work. No one should miss the Inspirations by Jo."
VP Emerson, Cumming, Ga
"In mid-October I was feeling like my world was falling apart. It was. I went to Facebook hoping to find a little hope. As I was looking, I saw a piece of art with a girl flying a kite in a field of flowers. I knew I was supposed to call Joanne before she sold it to someone else. In that art I see myself trying to put all my hurt and pain on the kite so God could help me face my future alone. My husband of 60 years had to be placed in a memory care facility. I sold my car, my home, and moved into a 3 room apartment. I look at my kite everyday. God is still working on my pain and hurt."

"Joanne was prompt, professional, and quite incredible! I wanted a sentiment for my grandmother who lost her dog in 2018. I came up with the idea quite late during the Holiday season, but as soon as I contacted Joanne, she responded and acted. I received the most wonderful present for my Grammy in just a few days so that I could give it to her on Christmas Eve! It was absolutely beautiful and I am so grateful for her. If you want a beautiful piece for you, family, or friends, you are looking in the right place!"
Lauren Taylor, Rock Hill, South Carolina
"I love both my paintings . You captured the brotherly love in my grandchildren. Not sure how you paint love, but you did. My son's dog Zoey was amazing . It brought tears to my son’s eyes. She is an old soul and you captured that special look in her eyes. Thank you so much!"
Barbara Glore, Milton, GA
"This artist is amazing! I sent her a photo of my Yorkie-Szhuh (Ollie) via email and in two days she had his portrait ready to deliver! The painting looks just like Ollie and even seems to have captured his personality, too! The rustic wood she painted on looks so gorgeous in my ship-lapped family room. Highly recommend!"
Angie McKinney, Cumming, GA
"We have purchased 10 paintings from Artist, Jo. She is a dedicated, talented artist in many aspects. Jo has painted various themes, and most anything you're interested in...she is able. We have bought art from her gallery, and hired her to paint on commission. Her inspiration is unique. Since we live in Indiana our paintings are always shipped. They are packed and shipped well. Jo is highly recommended. "
Tim and Amy Keeney, Anderson, IN
"Joanne did an amazing job capturing our sweet Yorkie, Emmie! The painting was done on a piece of wood that gives it a modern rustic look, and we proudly display it on our foyer table. We also have a few more of her pieces throughout our home, and each one is uniquely beautiful. Joanne's work truly does inspire just as she herself does! She proudly proclaims her love for Jesus and gives God the glory for lifting her from deep despair to sing a new song, paint the things we all love, and speak hope into the lives of everyone she meets! I'm thankful we live close by so from time to time I have the pleasure of being in her presence to absorb the excitement she has for finally finding and living out God's plan for her life."
Carla Yates, Cumming, GA
I have known Joanne since high school. I knew she was talented back then, so imagine my surprise when I found her thru someone sharing her work on facebook years later. She had painted someone's pet. With my son's birthday coming up and his love for his two special dogs, one alive and one passed, I sent her pictures of both and she did a beautiful job capturing those special pets. Well, since then, I've bought a chicken she painted and commissioned two other pictures for gifts. And, I hope to hang many more of her paintings. She is so conscientious, pours herself into every painting and aims to please 100%. I highly recommend Jo and look forward to saying " I knew her when!"

"Joanne's talent is surpassed only by her heart filled with love for creating beautiful images of God's creations. I have several pieces of her art (an owl, a woodland church, and a river scene) also one that I commissioned as a gift; a perfect likeness of a black Labrador. I love them all! I recommend her work without reservation!"
Janie Holbrook, Blairsville, GA
My husband and I bought a beautiful butterfly painting from Joanne’s website. I love this painting! It is so simple but is so warm and comforting. I’ve known Joanne for years but had no idea she had this talent. I had to have more so for Father’s Day I commissioned Joanne to do a portrait of me. I was nervous but Joanne led me through the process and together we came up with an idea for a pose and background that captured the essence of who we are as a couple. Joanne went to work and created a beautiful piece of art. To say my husband was surprised and pleased is an understatement. We both love the portrait!

I saw some of Joanne's paintings on Facebook and was very impressed with the details of her paintings. A few months ago I attended a Memorial Service for a young lady and out of the crowd a lady came forth and spoke about her own life story. The more I listened, the more I realized, that's Joanne!! I spoke to her that day and mentioned that my Dad has mules, asked if she could paint them, and of course she got all excited. I took her pictures of the mules and explained a little bit about their differences (they're almost identical) and within a few days she built the wooden canvas, worked her God given artistry talent, and I have a beautiful painting to give my Dad for Christmas!!

Joanne captured our sweet Jessie's beauty and her sweet spirit so perfectly that it brought me to tears. What God has bledded Joanne with goes far and beyond talent. You can see what I mean when you visit inspirationsbyjo.com.

There are no words to describe how special this is to me! Joanne, you captured her so perfectly in this painting! When I first saw it, I started crying. Thank you so much!
