J Henry Studio
Painting & Ceramics
Originally from Florida, Joanna moved to South Carolina in 2007, where she began an education in art. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Winthrop University in 2015 and went on to intern with the Charlotte Art League and the C&H Museums of York County. In 2017 her work was featured on billboards throughout the Charlotte-Metro area, and the Charlotte-Douglas Airport in accordance with the ArtPop Street Gallery. Currently Joanna continues her practice as a studio artist.
Her work is available online as well at various artist markets in Charlotte, NC and Richburg, SC.
She makes art because it is a way for her to honor the many people who influence her. It is also an analysis of her culture and the positioning of a woman of color as the author when historically that hasn’t been the case
