Jo-Ann is an Interior Designer with firms formerly located in Boston and Reading. Working for 20 years on commercial and residential projects thru out Boston, the North Shore, and New York areas.
Though design was her predominant focus, art has always been her passion. When first opening her design doors in the 80’s, she sought out some of Boston’s best surface, textile and fine art artists. With her artistic approach and mastery of color interpretation, she skillfully integrated art and design. Her respect for the artist and his or her craft made it possible to put many ego’s on a project working as a team to create “one of a kind” exciting results.
Through the years Jo-Ann has continued her education and training through various and diverse courses in Drawing, Painting, Sumi Painting and Surface Art. But a love of Modern European Design and the Masters of Modern Art has led to the stimulating artwork she produces today.
After taking a year off from her design practice, she decided to focus completely on her art.
While her earlier work was a vehicle for personal enjoyment or emotional release, her new work evokes passion and a “live for the moment philosophy”.
Abstract art should make you think as well as feel… and Jo-Ann hopes her art will inspire you to do both.
