Joann Galarza Vega is a multifaceted artist who explores a variety of themes, such as the creation of the universe, connection of all things, and the journey through life and personal growth. Often, she is inspired by examining the mundane and presenting it in new and different ways. While she refuses to commit to one medium, she enjoys the unpredictability and ethereal feel of alternative photographic processes. Not interested in perfection in her artwork, she is interested in provoking thought and creating emotional response. Joann is passionate about nature and the environment, and is co-founder of the Conversations with Nature artist group dedicated to bringing environmental awareness to community.
