Joann's primary medium is clay, which she came to love in her maturity. She earned 2 Masters of Fine Art Degrees at age 63.
Often combining clay with mixed media, she creates sculptural work exploring emotional, political and primarily feminist issues. She also enjoys making items that people handle and use every day, like cups and bowls and vases.
Joann thinks about each item, as it is created, “from my hands to yours”. And just for fun, frogs, lizards, cats and an occasional dog will find their way into her work.
