She has sold pictures to many of the major stores in London, New York and Tokyo, Australia and other countries in Europe. This thrived until 2006 when card making finally won and took over all the production and warehouse space at the company, but Joanna’s first love will always be flowers in some form or another!
Currently, Joanna focuses primarily on card making and spends much of her time working with the Ideal World Shopping Channel and their sister channel Create and Craft.
