Artist Statement

A wise photographer once told me, “You need to learn the rules first, and then you can break them.” I learned those rules through my roots in traditional photography, and they made me a better artist. I am now at a phase in my life where I feel the freedom to break those rules as I wander down paths somewhat removed from reality. I really like it here!


Joann’s use of photography as a means of expression began with film and has journeyed to include digital and alternative methods. Her work has roots in more traditional media but has expanded to include unusual print surfaces such as aluminum cans and image transfers to wood. Joann shares her work at local art shows and personal exhibits as well as at the White Rabbit Gallery where she is a founding member. She teaches classes at Greenville Center for Creative Arts and Spartanburg Art Museum as well as gives private lessons in photography, digital processing, and alternative processes such as image transfers and cyanotypes.
