Joana is a Spanish artist based in the U.K since 1993. She is also a mother and works part time as a Veterinary Surgeon. She describes her practice as one of “Doing and Making Stuff”. Anything internal or external can be a source of inspiration and the medium used will be dictated by what “feels right” at the time. However, there is often an performative element in the work whether this is seen or not. The themes underlying the works often have layers of meaning, varying from the simplicity of the pleasure of making marks on paper with a pencil to contemplations on existence, language, gender and privilege.
