Noted for her mixed media paintings and feature muted palettes, at first glance Joanne's predominantly uncomplicated collages evoke a sense of obscurity and often draws upon her memories of working in the financial world during the technology boom and the bear market in real estate.
 
Using historical imagery combined with layered abstract forms and gestural brushstrokes Joanne’s design experience lends to each painting a balance between control and spontaneity resulting in a bold interplay of color and composition.
 
A graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC and Rutgers University, Joanne is a signature member of the Garden State Watercolor Society who has painted since she was a child. And, although she worked for many years in home furnishing and textile design, painting has always been an integral part of her life.
