Joan Strier's first venture into the world of art was through stone sculpting. Her inspiration came from human forms, while favoring the female body. Her work was mainly abstract, as she enjoyed expanding her ideas, feelings and emotions into art.
Three years ago Joan began painting, and now feels completely free to express herself in every type of medium that she can. There is no limit to what she will try! Joan's work includes the following mediums: acrylic, ink, encaustic (wax), pastel, sewn and painted rice paper, and mixed media. She is greatly influenced by nature, form, and aerial maps, as you can see in the diversity of her work.
