Joanne Thompson is an artist who lives and works on the borderlands of North Wales and Cheshire. Joanne’s enjoyment of the creative started during early childhood when she spent hours learning the skills of domestic crafts with her grandmother. She originally studied graphic design at the North Wales School of Art and Design and worked for a number of years in textiles before returning to study for a Fine Art (BAHons) degree, graduating in 2007.
Since then Joanne has established her own studio and her work is displayed in both private and corporate collections.
Joanne’s work concentrates on exploring the interface between memory and experience, relying on a personal sense of subject and working intuitively, Joanne allows her mixed media approach to evolve naturally. The work is only finished when her perception of the subject appears as a visual object.
