Artist bio

It was no surprise that having grown up in a family environment of 3 generations of needlewomen Joanna went on to graduate from a Degree in Art & Design, specialising in Textiles.  This degree took her into work as a Fair Trade designer, travelling extensively around the world.
After more than 10 years she could no longer ignore her personal desire to extend and develop creatively and so she retrained at York School of Jewellery as a designer jeweller.
Joanna's current collection combines her two passions – jewellery and textiles – with the third essential element of her memories, observations and personality.

Joanna Wakefield has exhibited in previous York Open Studios 2016.
