If you would like to meet Joanne or discuss a commission, she is normally at The Gallery on Thursdays. Please call The Gallery on 01249 471447 to make an appointment.
Joanne retired from Wiltshire Police in 2017; she had always enjoyed art as a hobby and was determined to improve her skills. When browsing the internet she was drawn to reduction lino cuts and when she started to make her own lino cuts felt like she had found her happy place.
Reduction lino cut uses one block of lino to print all the colours, as each colour is printed then more of the surface of the block is carved away, reducing the area. It requires the block and paper to come into contact in exactly the same place for each colour.
Joanne’s artwork is part of many private collections at home and overseas, including the Wiltshire Museum Art Archive and has exhibited in the following;
2019 – Pound Arts Open
2019 – Oexmann Exhibition, Wiltshire Museum
2019 – Cloth Road Open, Wiltshire Museum
