Joan began using a camera when she was about 8 or 9. Her dad was always taking pictures and she’s sure it rubbed off on her. Joan shot on family vacations and around the neighborhood. Later, in college, she studied photography, while majoring in journalism. That’s where she received her darkroom training and that’s when her passion really took hold. Later, as a journalist, Joan would occasionally do photography for various publications. Over the decades, Joan continued to build her skills through seminars and classes. She particularly enjoyed experimenting with hand coloring and alternative printing techniques.
“I am inspired by many things: nature, light, colors, shapes, other artists and their work. The act of creating something is so satisfying. The past few years I’ve been caught up in the digital world, and that’s not a bad thing. But my goal is to get back in the darkroom to process and print piles of black and white negatives that I continue to shoot. I love the purity of the art form, the magic of working with light and film, the tonality. When I look at the work of the masters – Henri Cartier-Bresson, Ansel Adams, Margaret Bourke-White, Minor White, and even Vivian Maier -- that’s the inspiration to do more, to do it better. I just plan to keep creating, keep learning, keep experimenting. Art is so personal and subjective. I find that I am attracted to many different art forms. I think the more art you are exposed to, the more open your mind and eyes become. You see the world differently.”

The Art Storefronts Organization has verified that this Art Seller has published information about the archival materials used to create their products in an effort to provide transparency to buyers.
Archival Quality paint must have certain qualities. The first is the paper itself. The paper or canvas must be manufactured using pure alpha cellulose fibre, pure cotton fibre or a combination of the two materials. This will ensure the paper base is pH7 or above or acid free. A paper that contains lignin cannot be acid free as lignin is a naturally occurring acid within plant fibres. It is the lignin content in newsprint paper which causes it to yellow and go brittle over time. Next the paper is coated for preparation of printing. This preparation changes depending on the machine and paper used. The coating is applied to the surface of the paper base to ensure that the ink is absorbed in just the right amount. Once a coating is applied, the pH value (acidity) of the entire paper changes. The only way for this to be addressed is for manufacturers to ensure that the coatings used on their papers are as close to acid neutral as possible and to supply the pH value of the total paper (base and coating) rather than just the base. Then the ink is applied to the Archival paper. In order for a print to be considered An Archival print the inks used are pigment-based instead of dye-based. Finally; to maintain your Archival Print, below is a checklist.: 1. Ensure all the materials used to mount, frame and store finished prints are acid free. 2. Display your own prints out of direct light, in an environment with stable temperature, and humidity levels.
