Joanne loves natural forms, colours and textures,  working with them to create drawings and paintings, which she then manipulates to develop her unique textile designs.

She focuses on the use of natural materials, combined with traditional techniques, such as dyeing, knitting and weaving.

Joanne’s mixed media landscapes are created using a range of techniques, including naturally dyed textiles, collographs, ink, wax resist and watercolour, and are often embellished with hand or machine embroidery.
