Art has played many roles in Jo Ann Alford's life ... from making a living to healing her soul. At times it is a joy; at other times it becomes a painful discipline. Through the many transitions in her artwork there have been invaluable experiences.

Most of her artwork is non-objective allowing for a more personal interpretation of each piece. Starting with a general idea of the basic form the collages will take, she allows for flexibility as she responds to the lines, shapes and colors as each one evolves. While using varied techniques, Jo Ann's watercolor pieces begin with spontaneous gestures that lead to elements that reflect the fluid nature of the medium. The first brushstrokes and bits of paper in her work become a catalyst for the journey that lead her to her final destination.

Jo Ann Alford currently resides in Wilmington, N.C. Her scope of work can be viewed at
