About Joan of Austin

Organization is my forte. Here is a section of my home studio.

I am a mixed media artist and photographer. I work in my Home studio in South Austin, Texas. This website showcases my art and offers a variety of classes. Photography on this site is mine except for the zebras. Currently I engage in four areas of art (see Galleries) And always Photography. Two of my Photographs are now Hanging in the Lost Pines Art Gallery, Bastrop, Tx, where I was The Featured Artist in November 2018. This is a partial view of my studio where I work on four different surfaces.

Alcohol Ink Art

  • I teach several ways to express yourself using alcohol ink:   beautiful pendants using dominoes; paintings on Yupo papers; tiles and ceramics which start out as solid white pieces and then become your own unique piece of art.

This box is titled GAIA, with emphasis on over population, extinct animals and recycling.

Re-Boxing

For several years I have  been making themed vignettes in many kinds of boxes. I refer to these assemblages as "Re-Boxing". Included in my classes will be ways to use photography, found objects and papers in boxes and on cards.     Working on these boxes  brings me immense JOY!  I would love to teach you how to make your own boxes. I share photos of some of  the "Re-Boxing" assemblages on this site under Galleries. 7 to 12 surfaces of a box may be worked with collage and assemblage.  Each box takes from 4 to 30 hours to complete depending on  size and theme. Every one is completely different.
