Joanne F. Desmond received a BA in Art from University of MA/Boston with a concentration in printmaking and photography; M. Ed. in Arts & Learning from Endicott College; MFA from Mass College of Art & Design. Desmond’s work has shifted from the traditional use of media (i.e. photography and printmaking) into an exploration of materials, how they can be combined and further developed. Her work is now primarily mixed media, which has often taken on a more sculptural form.

Joanne Desmond’s studio, Red Horse Studio, is in Berwick, ME. She is a member of Monoprint Guild of New England, Boston Printmakers, Brickbottom Arts Association, and Encaustic Art Institute.
