Project Faustino is made up from maps of the world, but focusing mostly in Europe. Places such as Henley-on-Thames, Lincoln, Wakefield, Shrewsbury, Majorca and Mount Everest are of significant importance to those involved within the project. Although difficult to see they are all there. The businesses are represented by their logos and the arrow like shapes signify their speed and global communication around the world. The number 8 is incorporated amongst the yellowing paper arrows made from a mixture of atlas maps and copies of the Rioja wine label Faustino.

Joanne has exhibited work all around the world. In the UK she has shown work at some of the top leading galleries and exhibited in many craft shows.
Joanne has always been a collector of things for as long as she can remember. Filling shoe boxes with beads, stamps, butterflies and buttons. Today her studio is full of drink cans, sweet papers, foils, corks, bottle tops and bits of plastic from an assortment of packaging.
Through a series of playful experiments Joanne transforms these normally ‘throw away' materials into something that will be cared for, maybe worn and treasured in a jewellery box or hung and admired on the wall as a piece of art.
Joanne loves the challenge of turning something old into new, something seen as beautiful or intriguing and hopefully something that will inspire others.
The material is usually her dominating inspiration.
