About the Artist
JoAnn Ralph is both an artist and a healthcare worker. She has spent much of her life among healthcare providers and people who use healthcare services.
JoAnn began drawing with pen and ink over fifty years ago before studying in both Toronto and Windsor. Her work has been influenced by visual and life experiences she considers to have been profound, including the viewing of matter through microscopes and the world from above, the study of art and schematic diagrams of neuroanatomical structures, and engaging with interesting people.
JoAnn has repurposed materials inher art practice for decades. She has printed on leather and drawn on both paper samples and stone. She cuts mats from recycled or imperfect “seconds” and refurbishes metal frames.
