Joan B. Myers received a M.A. in Human Development from Farleigh Dickinson University in 1987.She has also completed the photography option in film (color, black and white, darkroom) as well as digital photography at Brookdale Community College where she received an AAS. Her passion for photography continues as she explores composition and design with Laury Egan. In 2009 Joan was accepted as an Exhibiting Member at the Guild of Creative Art.
Joan’s work focuses on pristine composition, vivid color, shapes, patterns, and altered perceptions. For Joan, creating a visual image is not only serene but at the same time exhilarating because it increases her sense of being alive. She takes great delight in surprising the viewer with unusual images that are thought provoking and sometimes humorous. She believes that the presentation of her art should also be meticulous.
Joan has exhibited her art in a variety of prestigious juried shows. To date her work has been displayed at the Art Alliance, the Guild of Creative Art, Brookdale Alumni Association, Bayonet Farm Art Show, Center for Visual Arts at Brookdale College, Monmouth Festival of the Arts, 2nd Saturday in Long Branch, and Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences.
