About Jo-Ann

My Husband Richard and I recently relocated to the beautiful mountain town of Flat Rock, North Carolina, from Cape Canaveral, Florida.  What a joy it is to be surrounded by these beautiful mountains and waterfalls!  We’re now just 10 minutes from downtown Hendersonville and 40 minutes south of ASHEVILLE, NC.  I work along with my studio assistant, Charlie, (my 10 year old poodle) in my beautiful new home studio (hand built by my talented husband).  Stop by and see me at my studio (by appointment only).  I have works for sale, samples of student’s work from my CREATIVITY WORKSHOPS, and of course, always tons of “works in progress”.
Jo-Ann is a former public & private school art teacher, a current CREATIVITY WORKSHOP LEADER and award winning ARTIST.  In 2017, she was awarded 1st  place in fine craft for her silk batik painting, “Converging Spirits” at the Henderson County Arts Council’s popular “BRING US YOUR BEST” exhibit.  Her unique silk batik and fiber/mixed media collage work has received award recognition in shows locally and in Florida. She has taught several weekend and week long workshops at the famous JOHN C. CAMPBELL FOLK SCHOOL in Brasstown, NC. She graduated from Becker College in Worcester, Massachusetts and the University of Central Florida in Orlando.  Her hometown is Manchester, Connecticut, but spent several years in San Francisco and Santa Rosa, California before moving back east.
