Bay Area artist Jo Ann Biagini presents new works on paper that simultaneously embody whimsy and lushness. Inspired by books about nature as well as by the natural world itself, Biagini puts book pages into new environments layered with drawn and painted imagery. With shape, color and scale she conjures up new visions of the natural world.

Born in Oakland, California, Jo Ann received an MFA in ceramics from the California College of the Arts in 1993. Jo Ann has shown her work regionally and nationally. She recently had a solo show at Canada College in Redwood City. She currently teaches at Creative Growth Art Center in Oakland CA.
