Joan Curtis was born and raised in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. She graduated from the University of Alabama in 1974 with a major in painting and a degree in art education. For the last 38 years, she and her husband have lived and raised their children in Vestavia Hills. Mrs. Curtis is also a registered nurse and works part-time in the Division of Pediatric Cardiology at UAB Hospital.
Mrs. Curtis shares her painting talents by participating in art shows and festivals around the Southeast. Her newest painting collection is full of vivid colors and delightful subject matter. The metallic drippings are poured in silver, gold and copper. The meticulous abstract drippings are interpreted to reflect what she knows and loves best: her family, her many friends, and the joy of flowers and travel.
The “Do Wa Diddy Collection” includes a series of funky people, colorful abstracts, fun floral, impressionistic cityscapes, and musical instruments.
