JoAnn freely admits her obsession with glass. She spent the first 25 years of her creative life making gift items, numerous panels and commissioned pieces in stained glass. The past 15 years have been devoted to kiln-formed glass.
Her knowledge and abilities have been enhanced by taking many classes from world-renowned artists, both locally and internationally. In addition to creating and selling works which are greatly influenced by the beauty she sees in nature, she teaches the art of glass fusing in her fully equipped studio in historic downtown Hillsboro.
JoAnn feels blessed by the experiences and the people that have come into her life because of her glass art.
