"My work is designed to be subtle, thoughtful and subliminal and I intend it to speak powerfully to people on an emotional level."
Over 40 years of tapestry, or ‘picture weaving’ expertise brought together in simply stunning works. These rare pieces combine artistic ability and craftmanship, that have taken many dedicated months to produce.
Joan studied tapestry at Edinburgh College of Art and Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts, then worked as a weaver and trainer in commercial tapestry studios in the UK and Australia, notably working on the Henry Moore tapestries at West Dean Tapestry Studio.
She has been an independent tapestry artist since 1987, working to commission and exhibiting widely; in the UK, Scandinavia and elsewhere around the world. She lectures, teaches, and is published in her specialist field.
