was born and raised in England and came to Canada in 1968. She
moved to Deep River in 1976.
Joan had always been interested in sewing and
embroidery and was introduced to this medium by one of her talented
daughters. She works on finely woven fabric with coloured silks
to create original pictures of landscapes, buildings, fauna
and flora, from photographs and drawings. She also reproduces
paintings by well known artists in this entirely different medium.
Joan creates these pictures for the joy of
working with coloured silks. Her framed pictures can be found
at 'From The Valley Artisans' in Deep River, Ontario.
