Joan B. Myers received a M.A. in Human Development from Farleigh Dickinson University in 1987. She has also completed the photography option in film (black and white, color, and darkroom) as well as digital photography at Brookdale Community College where she received an AAS. Since 2008, Joan has continued to pursue her passion for photography studying with Laury Egan.

She states: “I enjoy making images that have a feel to them. They can be peaceful, moody or thought-provoking. Making images is a way of expressing my love of nature, patterns and shapes. Sometimes the ocean’s sound, rhythm, and vastness intrigue me. Other times a different gift from Mother Nature is presented to me.”

Joan has exhibited her art in a variety of prestigious juried shows. To date her work has been displayed at the Art Alliance, the Guild of Creative Art, Belmar Arts Council, Brookdale Alumni Association, Bayonet Farm Art Show, Center for Visual Arts at Brookdale College, Monmouth Festival of the Arts, Monmouth Museum, Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences, Ocean County Artists Guild, Canterbury Art Show, Art Society of Monmouth County, and Jersey Arts Registry Show. Twenty-six of her photographs are in the Collection Gallery of “B & W Magazine.”

Digital prints are created using archival pigments and individually selected papers.  A master printer will create the final product according to specifications.  Print size is based on either cropping or digital aspect ratio, based on dialogue with the customer.
