About Joan

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a concentration in painting from Eastern Michigan University. I have a varied, interdisciplinary background in the arts. As an undergraduate, I was thoroughly trained in painting, drawing, design, and sculpture. I graduated magna cum laude. Throughout graduate school, I explored a number of new and interdisciplinary media, including performance art, lyric essay, and video art. I also studied creative writing, art theory, and feminist theory. I now channel this variety of artistic media into video art and experimental film.

I have taught art at the college level. I aim to show my students that creative problem-solving is valuable in every aspect of life, and that self-expression through art is both an intellectual pursuit and a form of communication. I enjoy teaching students new ways of seeing, and that art affords the opportunity to do so in a new light--whether it be color, texture, gesture, or metaphor.

I teach drawing (still life), life drawing and painting (including portraits), watercolor, oil and acrylic painting, mixed media, photography design, sculpture, installation, introduction to video art, and creative writing. I tailor my courses to the needs and desires of the student.

Please contact me with any questions about tutelage, and together we will determine whether my services would be a good fit for your needs. There are no stupid questions. I look forward to hearing from you!
