Joanna Dawson

Joanna Dawson trained as a Graphic Designer and illustrator at Portsmouth College of Art. On completing her training, she worked as an in-house designer for the Health Education Service, producing art work and illustrations for a number of departments, many of which are still in circulation.

Following this Joanna worked for a design company based in Portsmouth, she worked for local and national businesses, creating corporate identities as well as illustrating and producing posters and brochures. Her work at this time included designing the advertising literature for HMS Warrior and the costumes for the guides who work on the ship.

Joanna left full time employment to start a family and during this period she worked as a freelance designer and developed her illustration portfolio. In addition, she undertook portrait work, which she produced to commission. She also worked in an art gallery, advising customers on art and sculpture by a range of artists and was also given hanging space for her own work.

Joanna's current work draws inspiration from a broad spectrum, including social media, film and photography. She has a great love of natural history and this is reflected in her current series of animal portraits. She has also taught art in schools and at further education classes to GCSE level.

Her landscapes have an abstract feel and evoke the spirit and emotions inspired by a number of locations she has visited. She enjoys working in a variety of media and mixes traditional gouache, acrylic, watercolour and coloured pencil, together with collage and ballpoint pen and on occasion, tea and coffee!
