Jo-Ann was born in Manitoba in 1942 but immigrated with her parents as a teenager to Southern California where she eventually studied Business. After pursuing many successful businesses throughout her lifetime, such as designing childcare centers and establishing an Interior Design firm, her journey eventually brought her back home to Canada where she settled in Kelowna and focused on a career in Finance. Now retired, Jo-Ann pursues her Art full time and is devoted to advancing her knowledge by attending workshops and enjoys being part of a vibrant creative community.
Jo-Ann is an abstract artist that revels in the freedom and chemistry of mixing various products so that tangible subjects spontaneously appear in her work. Her purpose is to capture that magical happenstance and is often surprised by what develops. Her work has been exhibited at the Kelowna Art Gallery and she is currently working on a body of work for various shows in the Okanagan.
