My name is Joann Amitrano, I live and work in Brooklyn,N.Y.
I create jewelry, recycled art, paintings, sculptures and photography on a daily basis and take custom requests. I have worked side by side with interior designers, stylists in the fashion industry and various other shops on creating specific pieces for special projects.
I am self taught with the exception of a couple of classes. One course being on ancient mosaic techniques in Ravenna,Italy. The others include a couple of welding workshops, drawing & ceramics.
I have taught jewelry making privately and also at The JCC of NYC.
I had exhibited my work at juried art exhibitions since 1989 and continue to do so.
Art is in my blood, the desire to create and to find ways to articulate the undertones of what is felt and seldom seen is the force that drives me onward.
