After gaining a first class honours degree in design in 2014, Joanne chose to specialize in textile art combining drawing and painting with hand and machine embroidery. She takes inspiration from the innate irregularity of patterns found in nature, capturing its unique beauty and unpredictability. Influenced by botanical illustrations united with an exploration of the imagination, Joanne creates distinctive and wonderful representations of art found in nature.
