Josine Tonen

My name is Josine Tonen and I am a local artist from Grovedale, who specialises in portraits, but also enjoy mixed media such as watercolour, charcoal and pen. I did not really start sketching & painting till after I retired from my work as a radio broadcaster for SBS Radio in Melbourne.
I discovered the very lively and vibrant art community in Geelong and surrounding regions! After taking a few classes and lots of online studies, as well as taking up the pencil or brush every single day for over 12 months, I am truly hooked on art. There is always so much more to learn and discover! I work with photo references, so people do not have to sit for hours to get their portrait done.
Most of my sketches are of the wonderful people I have met during my travels around the world. I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to share my work with the community at the Grovedale Neighbourhood House in February 2018. Portraits in graphite (starting at $95 for an A4 size – unframed)
