Head painting was one of the fundamental classes at Art Center College of Design where Joanne had the opportunity to work with instuctors, Richard Bunkall, Harry Carmean and Dan McCaw learning a variety of technique and formal foundation to compose the head and the figure. Over the past decade Joanne has diligently painted the head and she is recently working on a oil series of 30′ x 40″ figures on canvas.
