Joan Coen is an artist who paints in her home studio in Carlow. Born in Ballyferriter in west Kerry, she has lived most of her adult life in Carlow. Joan began her artistic journey many years ago as a self-taught painter, describing herself as having been ‘startled’ into painting by experiencing the vivid beauty of a marsh marigold on the banks of the River Barrow near Carlow town.
Her paintings have featured in solo and group exhibitions and are included in public and private collections in Ireland, Europe and USA.
