Though the Christmas rush may have delayed it a bit, it still arrived on time. My wife absolutely loves it. It's a wonderful design, and the metal print is a perfect medium for it. Excellent work and a wonderful shopping experience overall.

Lifelong artist, arts educator, nonprofit worker, vinyaasa yoga teacher and life coach with an insatiable curiosity for wildlife and adventure!

Joanna finds great joy, healing, curiosity, and centering through the process of visual art. She uses art as a means of better understanding her self and her relationship to the universe.

She launched an Etsy shop on 10-10-10 and sold hand-painted silk scarves online and at local festivals for five years. She has also taught workshops in silk painting and has found great joy in sharing the process with others. In her current work, she often incorporates hand painted silk with other media, and as time and resources allow she plans to revisit wearable art while also maintaining her fine art practice.

She recently completed The Artist's Way with a group of community members and found it incredibly illuminating in how she thinks about her work and process. She's since developed a dedicated journaling practice and is discovering the multitudes of ways that her art extends beyond the canvas. For Jo, art is truly a way of being -a never-ending cycle of exploring, connecting, questioning, laughing, and discovering.
