Hi there! My name is Joanna!
I’m a professional artist living in New York City with my husband and our cat, Junebug. I have a passion for illustrating and creating beautiful things, and I love encouraging others to pursue their own unique creativity.
Since leaving my corporate fashion design job in 2015, I've turned my illustration hobby into a multi-faceted creative business - running my illustration shop, creating commissioned artwork, licensing my illustrations and now teaching others how to create their own beautiful work too.
My journey into teaching began with Instagram, posting work-in-progress videos and sharing mini drawing tutorials on YouTube. After getting lots of requests for more in-depth instruction specifically geared towards beginners, my first online illustration course was born.
I'm eager to share all of my best marker illustration secrets with you so that you can skip past the wasted time & frustration and begin sketching what you love!
