About Joann Renner

Originally from southcentral PA, I spent a lot of time growing up in both Seaside Heights, New Jersey and Pa Dutch country depending on my parents' work. I have a BA in Studio Art/Art History from the University of Pittsburgh, 1986. I have had 4 solo exhibitions and participated in numerous juried and nonjuried group exhibitions since then. In 1999 I received the Judges Citation Award from WITF Gallery 33 On The Air. I took some time off to raise my family and have now restarted my career. Current member of the Pittsburgh Pastel Artists League. I work primarily in oils and pastels, my secondary medium is drawing. I have other ideas in the works for experimenting with other mediums later on. Recently, I completed a project for a local startup thoroughbred racing stable, which included business graphics, designs for jockey silks and a custom oil painting. My subjects include landscapes, architectural themes, animal and historical themes. My primary influences have been my mentors while in college-Paul Binai, Ken Batista, James P. Nelson, Paul Glabicki, Girts Purins, Joseph Shepler, and Phil Rostek. German Expressionism, the post-Impressionists, and Japanese woodblock prints, esp. artists like Whistler, Cezanne, Wolf Kahn, Hopper, F. Church, among others. There are some images that I have copyrighted under my maiden name of Kohr, they are not by someone else.
I strive to use color and composition to engage the viewer to make their own interpretation of my work. I often include a feeling of the intangible within a place, thing, or animal through my perception of it. It can be beauty, awareness of past events and their effects on the community consciousness, or simply a sense of being.
Any questions are welcome. You may contact me for handcolored signed versions of the drawings, for custom work, and for gallery/representation/publishing or licensing inquiries. Also, look for my original T-shirt designs at to order T-shirts and accessories. My work is also available on and I just published my independent website Time to splurge on yourself!
