JoAnne Lobotsky is an American artist who builds her colorful, expressionistic paintings with layers and textures. The texture in her work is created by mixing acrylic paint with various gel mediums and pastes, sand, and sometimes other materials. Her work is driven by an intuitive process and experimentation toward a natural resolution in the finished work. Lobotsky grew up on a farm, so nature's details, physicality and growth processes as well as landscape are her main inspirations.

Lobotsky has been a practicing artist in New York City and recently the Hudson Valley for over three decades. She studied sculpture at the School of Visual Arts in New York City with the mentorship of Alice Aycock, Judy Pfaff and Elizabeth Murray and graduated with a BFA cum laude. She also studied printmaking at the University of Colorado at Boulder and painting at the Art Students League of New York. In the recent past she has had two solo shows and won several prizes in group shows for her work. Her work is in private collections in the US and Europe.
