About Joanne Stead
Joanne Stead is a self-taught artist and poet from Tamworth NSW.
She describes herself as a “mum, artist and life enthusiast” drawing her inspiration from the magic of the everyday. “I believe that two of most important things in life are a sense of belonging and a sense of purpose,” Joanne says. “Feeling that you belong connects you to others, and feeling that you offer something meaningful, connects you to society, so to have both is critically foundational. Rediscovering and reconnecting to my artistic side has made me feel like I am truly honouring my unique essence, and it has been a major turning point for me.”
A diverse artist, Joanne works across mediums including scraperboard, acrylics, spraypaint, charcoal, collage and mosaics. Her artworks are described as unique, whimsical and striking. Joanne held two large solo exhibitions during 2016 and the largest of these - Choosing to Fly - featured 54 artworks and 40 works of poetry. A founding member of the Tamworth Regional Art Collective, Joanne has also worked on four public art projects in the last year, including two large mosaic installations.
