Region: Vancouver Coast & Mountains
Joan was born in Manitoba but spent all her life living in British Columbia except for eight years living in Tokyo in the early seventies. Her stay Japan has had and influence on her taste in design.
She has worked in many art mediums and as a graphic designer. Her earlier works are largely botanical illustrations which united her love of gardening and painting. Now Joan works mainly in polymer clay which marries the three dimensionality of clay with the range of colours found in paint. Joan discovered her love of polymer clay while teaching children’s art .
In the future she is planning in incorporating polymer clay in larger mixed media works.
