Joan studied art in London before moving to Cornwall in the late 1950s. She lived in Mousehole where she was responsible for beginning the illumination of the town and harbour with lights at Christmas, now a famous tradition.
After exhibiting at the Newlyn Orion gallery for several years, Joan had her first solo show in 1969 and thereafter at galleries across Cornwall and later, the UK. Her paintings, influenced by those of Alfred Wallis and Kit Wood among others, are among the most avidly collected of any of the post-war St Ives school artists' work.
