About the Artist


My name is JoAnn Kenny and I am an artist. You have seen my artwork, which is the true test of talent. However, I would like to give you a little more information about my background, influences and ideals.

A full art scholarship led me to the College of St. Catherine in St. Paul, Minnesota, where I majored in Fine Art and minored in Art Education. More recently, I attended Waukesha County Technical College to earn a Desktop Publishing Certificate which allowed me to work as a Graphic Designer.

Since my gift is drawing, I have pursued a background rich in art education and experience to capitalize on my natural ability and to acquire superior art skills. In fact, my entire life has been art-related.

My background includes teaching art at the secondary level, designing signs, designing advertising materials of all types and print ads, and even owning a printing shop. Finally, after many years and many experiences, my work is what I do best - illustrating.

Nearly 5 years ago, I decided to work my business full time. Since then I have completed over 700 home portraits and even more pet portraits. My customer list is about 600 strong now and referrals constitute a large part of my business. I believe this is because I consistently deliver my best work.
