Joan has been teaching art for over 30 years, first at the high school level, and then at Riverrun Center for the Arts. She has offered felt making workshops for 16 years locally, regionally and internationally.
“My fiber art workshops utilize a technique I call “pictorial felt-making”, in which the fleece is layered and “painted” to create 2-dimensional art objects,” Joan says. “The possibilities of using the vibrantly colored fleece with this technique, and creating a unique form of art, are endless. "
Joan has been an instructor at John Campbell Folk School in North Carolina on several occasions, and has taught several 2 week fiber art workshops/ tours with hands-on instruction in Ireland. She holds a Master's Degree in Visual Arts, with emphasis in Ceramics and Fiber Art. She lives on Madeline Island in Lake Superior, which provides endless inspiration for her fiber work.
