Writer & artist currently creating a work of historical fiction set in New York and Saratoga Springs.

Welcome! Beem Studio is impassioned about creativity and sharing it with you. Whether it's a colorful painting on your wall, an exciting book you can't put down – art touches our lives radiating emotions that influence us daily. Joan Mortenson, director of Beem Studios understands the positive power of beautiful art – as a cancer survivor it carried her through tough times. Since middle school Joan has been serious about her creativity. She's earned a BA with honors in design, has decades of experience in advertising and design firms, and now offers her own custom creations. Watercolor and oil painting have always been a specialty as well as brochures, invitations, and logos. Beem Studio’s artwork is hanging coast to coast.

Beem Studio offers custom invitations , stationery, personal emblems as well as commissioned paintings, corporate logos and brochures. Check out our decor maps of Deep Creek Lake and Lake Norman with more in the works. (Joan is especially excited about a book she's writing–it's a true story about immigrants and socialites set in New York and Saratoga Springs’s prohibition days)
