About Joanna Coke
Joanna brings her past media experience as a graphic designer/art director for a large ad agency, as well as a fashion designer/business manager for Victoria's Secret stores, to bear in her present artworks as a mixed media painter. She creates multi-paneled artworks to be hung as one image. She uses highly developed surfaces and layers her colorful compositions sometimes with baroque, abstracted forms and at others times collaging varying textures and always with a strong concept to link the narrative across the paintings.
