For over 25 years I operated my successful ceramics studio, creating hand painted Art-Pottery while raising my small family, doing laundry and feeding the dog! In my down-time, I taught myself photography and began manipulating images to create whimsical scenarios with a timeless quality. I first introduced my compositions as a collection of Giclee prints.

"I begin my process by photographing textures, people, objects and whatever I need to build my image. I also draw from my extensive collection of 18 century tin type photographs which I have gathered over the past 30 years. Using my flatbed scanner, I enter this information into my art program to produce a large pixel image. It takes many, many hours to finally derive the composition that I desire. I print on Metallic Pearlesence Archival paper to give it that antique, tintype feel. The medium perfectly mirrors the emotional tone of the art."

As the sophistication and complexity of Joanne DeLomba's imagery has evolved, her attention has turned to finding new surfaces suitable for her digital collages. Her most recent experiments involve printing on photographic metal plates, opening the possibility for much larger compositions and the incorporation of new techniques. Recently she has introduced her signature style of design onto hand blown glass vessels. DeLomba's enthusiasm for her work is infectious, and her wry humor elicits giggles and guffaws. We look forward to seeing what great things the future brings!
