Born in New Zealand, Joanne works from her studio in Christchurch. Her paintings are informed by a variety of subjects, including history, advertising, a concern for the natural environment and everyday situations.
Satire and irony provide the basis for many artworks which delight in taking the Micky out of everything and anything. With an interest in fine detail, her work is defined by the use of bold design and colour which dances on the canvas and draws the eye around the scene.
Joanne has exhibited throughout New Zealand and in New York. She has work in collections in Hong Kong, Singapore, Germany, the United Kingdom and Italy (Benetton Collection), United States and Australia.
