Joan Kinghorn is an artist and photographer who moved to Cornwall in 1987. She develops her work through observational drawing and experimentation with watercolour, acrylic and oils. The resulting pieces have a touch of abstraction and always convey the felt experience of the subject. She has exhibited at the Camel Valley Gallery, and also shows her work with the Boscastle Group.
Alongside her painting practice, she is an adult education tutor, teaching 'A' Level art. In 2016 Joan Kinghorn became a member of Taking Space, a group of women artists living and working in Cornwall.
