Joanna is a Chicago-based scenic, props and puppets designer and scenic painter. Her background spans multitude of Chicago-land store front theatre projects, puppetry as well as work on film and TV stages. Her interests are varied though her approach always remains constant – to effectively communicate and empathize and spark conversation within a group of fellow artists and audience members alike while creating unforgettable experiences for the audiences of all ages. Her upcoming design for RTE’s production of The Firebirds Take the Field constitutes her seventh collaboration in the past decade with this amazing group of colleagues. Joanna is humbled and honored to be accepted in their ranks as the artistic associate.
