Joan has been immersed in the world of basketmaking for 20 years. Her passion for the medium has lead her to explore many of the different techniques and materials used in traditional basketry yet she also enjoys the sculptural and creative potentials that the medium offers. Harvesting and incorporating the natural materials found in the Pacific Northwest is her focus. She teaches and exhibits her work nationally and internationally and is the recipient of two Handweavers Guild of America Awards and two Canada Council for the Arts Grants.
