Joanette Hoffmann Egeli studied painting at Pennsylvania College of Art, the Art School of the Brooklyn Museum, and the Art Students League of New York. Joanette credits her late father-in-law, well-known painter and sculptor Bjorn Egeli, as having the most profound influence on her artistic development. "He was committed to the concepts of truth and beauty, and repeatedly stressed the importance of achieving excellence in all aspects of painting. He often reminded us that the most important endeavor for an artist was to make a beautiful work of art, regardless of who or what the subject might be."
Joanette Egeli's portraits of children are straightforward and appealing. She achieves a striking likeness, including less detail in the remainder of the portrait, accomplishing a harmonious blend of color with form. Joanette maintains a studio on the Maryland farm she shares with her husband, Cedric. Each summer, on Cape Cod, she hones her compositional and colorist techniques by painting children on the beach. She is a co-founder of the Maryland Society of Portrait Painters. Joanette's work has been exhibited at the Art Students League in New York, the Cape Cod Art Association, the Maryland Federation of Art, New York Salmagundi Club and the Brooklyn Museum.
