BEHIND THE SCENES
Process is key to Joanna’s work. Each piece starts as a mixed media
collage which Joanna uses to create a monochrome photogram - a darkroom
method where the paper template is exposed directly to light. This
unpredictable stage unlocks the image creating a vivid abstract
silhouette which is then deconstructed and rebuilt electronically. It is
at this point Joanna adds the face, expression and accessories – fine
details hand drawn using digital paint brushes. Once the piece is
complete, it’s transferred to silk screen and the final limited edition
print is pulled.
