Biography

After graduation from high school in Hanover, New Hampshire Joan pursued her art education on both coasts of the U.S, first graduating from the University of Washington in Seattle and then completing her graduate degree at the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI. Ever since, she has been traveling from coast to coast working as an art teacher and interior designer. Of the many courses she has taught over the years including metal casting and mold making, welding and metal fabrication, woodworking, drawing, and interior design, her favorite by far has been Three Dimensional Foundation Studies. In foundation studies, students explore the formal elements of art with the goal of truly understanding that each line, form, texture or color carries a meaning and they are learning to speak in the language of the visual world.
