Joan is a Ph.D. psychologist who has worked for many years in the helping professions, originally as an art therapist in an addiction treatment center.  She holds a Master's degree in Art Education.  Devoting her professional career to the behavioral health arena, she moved on into other roles that diminished her opportunities for continuing art work in a full time manner.  The practice of art was never far from her thoughts.  Now, she has returned to oil painting, her preferred medium, enjoying the expression of non-verbal but meaningful messages to the eye and heart.  She has studied at NYU, the New Jersey City University, privately with Rusty Coeholo in Pennsylvania, and at the Art Student's League with James McElhinney.  Currently she is a student of painter, Jerry Weiss, at the Art Students League in NYC.
