My name is Joanne Getz and I welcome you to my website. I live right on the shoreline of the Great Lake, Huron. Great it is. Massive in length and breadth it tends to put you right in your humble place in this Universe.
Life is full of addictions and passions. Two of mine are art and antiques. Hence the development of this website brings to fruition a dream of mine to share what I enjoy with others. I bring you these offerings with the deepest respect and love for the creative process. On these pages you will find antique items of interest as well as antique art and contemporary art.
I will use the Contemporary Art category to feature my original creations. There you will find how my creative process works and develops. I will feature paintings I have sold, still have in my collection as well as all the recent works I have finished. I am always adding new work. I try to paint or do something creative every day. Typically I paint using oil and board. I also do shell work and replicate Sailor’s Valentines as well as other shell creations.
During the summer months, there are about 4 warm months here on the Lake, I open my home as an art and antiques gallery. I offer an interesting line of antique and artistic inventory. Should you be traveling in Michigan I would love to have you stop by. The village I live in, Port Hope, is one of the few magical hide a ways left. It is small, charming and the lake environment makes it resplendent with beauty.
