An Affair of the Mind

Joan Mackay is a guest artist at Leonardo Gallery, courtesy of Covent Garden Fine Art Gallery.


I have been apprenticing at the studio of an internationally known Armenian artist, Sirak Melkonian, for the past nine years. Under his guidance I have been learning to combine old European methods with modern techniques and ideas. I finished an Art History degree by taking my final medieval requirements in Italy, at the University of Siena. Prior to moving to Prince Edward County I showed my work in Toronto, primarily at Gallery 401 and had several one artist shows as well as exhibiting at several group shows. I continue to study with Sirak and am always exploring new subjects and techniques. I have been creating and drawing most of my life.
