Joanna Barnum
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
Joanna Barnum is a Baltimore, MD based illustrator whose expressive watercolor style stretches across several genres, including conceptual portraiture, narrative illustration for children and adults, and wildlife and culinary illustration.

She also paints fine art watercolor portraits of people, pets, and homes for private clients (visit… for commission information), occasionally paints energetic murals in private homes and businesses, and exhibits her work locally and nationally.

Clients include North American Review, Cricket, Eating Well, Sage Woman, and numerous small presses and local businesses. Joanna’s popular Charles Darwin illustration was an American Illustration “Chosen” piece in 2010, and her work was included in The Big Book of Contemporary Illustration from Anova Books in 2009. Other compilations include’s New Masters of Fantasy, Aphrodisia: Art of the Female Form from Anova Publishing, Erotic Fantasy Art from Harper Design, and several editions of Yen Magazine’s Curvy books.

Joanna holds a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art, where she majored in illustration and minored in art history. She is an emeritus member of the board of directors for Playa Del Fuego, Inc., the 501c3 nonprofit organization that produces the official Burning Man event of the Mid-Atlantic region and awards grants for participatory, inclusive artwork. She is a member of "Girls Drawin' Girls," a juried pinup art collective composed of female illustrators and animators.

Hello there. Not sure if you realized, but one of your pieces is on display on a website I just stumbled across.…

I didn't see any credit given to you on the site, but I knew I'd seen it on dA, so...

Yeah. Just so you know, someone appears to be using your work without giving credit(and potentially without permission).

Just thought you should know.
