About Joanne Licardo
I got handed some oil paints when I was a teen. I liked the way they smelled and the way they moved. Along with them came the desire to paint like the old masters. When I was in my early 20’s I met someone that showed me how. Jan Valentine Saether. When he left LA, moved back to Norway, I began teaching. Its been over 20 years now. I’ve moved to Portland Oregon, where paintings over $100 are hard to sell. Trying to not get steered, but staying driven!
