My name is Joan Leal Carter. My life and work are testimony to the healing power "Art" can bring into one's existence. As a person who makes art and loves the process, I'm grateful to spend my days participating. The subjects of my art work whether portraiture, landscape, cityscape, or the lyrical, sometimes surreal use of human form, tell my own perception of the world and our existence in it. Who doesn't feel better after a walk in the woods or loosing oneself in a city skyline, at night?
