Joanna paints murals, canvases and scenic design, she also creates small and large three dimensional objects often made from wood, resin and/or paper-mache. Her artwork is inspired by the big and small things that catch her attention “things that delight, excite, amuse and move me, the people I meet; stories I hear; scenes I encounter; my travels; the diverse communities within which I work; and the patterns of nature”.

“Working with Fay and Lindsay has definitely added an extra (and enjoyable) dimension to my work. Between us we have the creative skills, technical knowledge and practical experience to deliver something that is much greater than the sum of the parts. For example in addition to fulfilling the artistic and engagement element of the project together we can also consult, plan, record, report and deliver in a way that adds value and depth and helps our clients achieve their wider goals and, targets and strategies. We all contribute to the creative process but by playing to our individual strengths I am free to concentrate of the areas of the work that I really love. “
Much of Joanna’s community arts practice focuses on projects that promote active dialogue and better understanding between diverse cultural and social groups. she sees enjoyment of art and nature as a great way of opening dialogue and making connections. Her inspiration and approach has always been based on the principles of empowerment, collaboration, and creative group dynamics. Joanna creates a learning environment in which both the student and teacher are drawn into a compelling sense of adventure, possibility and discovery.
“I value diversity in people, society, cultures, and nature. This awareness and commitment has been a key driving force not only in my involvement in social art projects but also in the themes and messages contained in my personal art works.”
