Joanne Weaver works as a professional artist with a particular interest in the human condition and health. She runs art classes (Art Works) for all ages and abilities in various locations. Her sculpture has been selected for 2012 Threadneedle Prize.
I worked as a nurse for 23 years and this has heavily influenced my creativity. Whilst studying, part time at The University of Creative Arts, I was also working with addiction, as a foster carer and a practice nurse - I became very adept at juggling.
My art work, almost inevitably, but not always, relates to social comment, although I have left nursing it has not left me.
