After receiving her BA in Visual Arts from West Virginia University, Joanne migrated from her home state to southern New Jersey. She has exhibited her art at the annual Ocean City Arts Center's Juried Art Show, TLC, Shore Memorial Hospital, Nashville North Studio, and Chora Leone Gallery. Joanne is a Realtor who enjoys cooking, gardening, fishing, and most of all, her family and friends. She resides in Egg Harbor Township, NJ with her husband David Goldmann.
"Currently I am working mostly in graphite to create imaginative images. The viewer may see a face or two, perhaps a limb, along with animate and inanimate objects. There is no right or wrong interpretation, and if my drawing evokes emotion, I have been successful." -Joanne Coffman
David Goldmann is a lifelong resident of Atlantic County. He graduated from Atlantic City High School and Rochester Institute of Technology, where he majored in photography. In 1974, he and his business partner established Impact Multi Image Photography, providing professional photographic services to residential and commercial clients nationally. His adolescent interest in fine woodworking turned into a lifetime avocation. His ongoing efforts resulted in high quality objects and furnishings for family, friends and others. Word of mouth resulted in commissioned items throughout South Jersey, the Delaware Valley, and New England.
His work has been exhibited at galleries and juried events including the Philadelphia Furniture & Furnishings Show, the Noyes Museum, Wheaton Village, East End Gallery, Surroundings Furniture Gallery, the Riverfront Renaissance Art Center, Nashville North Studio, and Chora Leone Gallery. Using various hardwoods, a passion for perfection, and a trained eye, David creates works accentuating the natural beauty and characteristics of his media in each piece he produces.
