The beauty of nature surrounding Los Angeles was the impetus for Joanne’s entrance into the field of photography. In 2000, she graduated from California State University, Los Angeles with a Masters of Fine Art (MFA). During these years, Joanne continued as a tenured teacher for Los Angeles Unified School District. She is now a full-time artist.
Joanne began her life’s journey in Ann Arbor, Michigan and graduated with a BA from Eastern Michigan University. Though the natural settings of Michigan are also quite beautiful, Joanne always dreamed of living in California. It was when she found the Santa Monica Mountains and her many hiking trails that Joanne learned to absolutely love Los Angeles.
The fact that many locales in Los Angeles, including the San Fernando Valley where Joanne has lived for so many years, have been used in Hollywood movies is also been an important part of my art influencing the creation of two photo books - A MONTH OF COOL DAYS AND HOT NIGHTS and INTERSPECIES DATING IN LOS ANGELES 3D.
In addition to color and black and white film, Joanne now shoots digitally and employs the techniques of infrared imaging and enjoy creating 3D anaglyphs to be viewed with red/blue lenses. She also combines images of nature with movie stills, mannequins, or human subjects in photo montages, with occasional text included in these artworks. Joanne has also experimented with video art. She has exhibited throughout California, nationally, in Korea, France and England.
