Joanne Graham, owner of Gigi Designs, is a textile and fused glass artist who lives in Deale, Maryland. She uses various wools along with other natural fibers to create pieces rich in color and texture. As a fused glass artist, Joanne likes to create pieces that reflect the scenery of her life, i.e. a group of row houses like the one she grew up in, or the group of sailboats she often sees in the area in which now resides. Just as the textiles are a reminder of her past days of sewing, items depicted in her glass art are also of fond memories.
