Hi. My name is Joan Kovach. I've been interested in art as long as I can remember. I started drawing in grade school and did many a paint-by-number sets as a child. In the 1980's I took a Tole Painting class in oils and was hooked for life. I found my passion. I have always loved birds, wildlife and nature. My ideas and love of nature come from God's beautiful creation and handiwork. Through the years my art has been featured in galleries both in Ohio and Arkansas. I have also done several art shows. Artists who have inspired me to paint and keep painting are wildlife artists Robert Bateman and Carl Brenders. I hope you enjoy viewing my paintings as much as I enjoy painting them.
