After abandoning her representative artwork the artist delves into the abstract exploring different light techniques.

In this creative journey the artist is taken from the dark space into lifting expressions of light where creatures emerge in the form of holograms floating around the room.

Joana’s strong interest in the Native Animal Teachings leads her to explore the meaning of each archetype using this language to decode each appearance.

This artform becomes a healing process that the artist finds in her own art allowing her to cope with the life challenges present in her personal life at that moment.
