Working from the landscape, or through study of nature’s patterns, Joanne explores textures and shapes through drawings and paintings, from which she produces her unique designs, instinctively creating abstract rather than realistic responses.
Joanne’s mixed media landscapes encompass a range of techniques including Appliqué and reverse Appliqué with naturally-dyed textiles, collagraphs, ink, wax resist and watercolour.
Joanne is currently exploring her interest in natural dyeing; cooking plants that she has foraged, and even making her own pigments for use in her watercolour landscapes. She is working on growing her own dye garden.
