bbbJoann Hughes received her Bachelors of Fine Art from Kean University in New Jersey.  She has a background in advertising and design, as a stained glass artist and high school art teacher.  Five years ago, she received a Masters of Art in Education, Studio Concentration Ceramics.

bbbHer figurative sculptures explore the way that shapes and space relate to the human form. She studies the complex relationships between man and woman throughout time and the ever changing "ideal" of beauty.  Artistically, she takes risks, bends rules and sometimes makes waves, inviting the viewer's reaction to her work based upon their own beliefs and their perception of hers.
