Joanna has been involved in the craft world since 1979. She has written over 30 books on cookery, herbs, stencilling, crafts and flowers during the past 20 years and is now best known for her work on TV with her craft CDs, cardmaking and pressed flowercraft programmes. She lives in Devon with her husband Richard and youngest daughter Emily - never forgetting their bossy little cocker spaniel called Wellington - Welly for short!
Joanna started building her pressed flower company back in 1979 and soon had a thriving international concern, making sales around the world. She has sold pictures to many of the major stores in London, New York and Tokyo, Australia and other countries in Europe. This thrived until 2006 when Cardmaking finally won and took over all the production and warehouse space at the company, but Joanna's first love will always be flowers in some form or another!
Teaching comes naturally to Joanna, she began her craft school here in the UK some 17 years ago and there is also the Joanna Sheen Flower School based in Osaka and with teachers spread around Japan. Joanna's craft courses are now very limited with other commitments taking so much of her time but, old and welcomed visitors return every year for Joanna's new and innovative teaching.
Currently, Joanna focuses primarily on card-making and spends much of her time working with the Ideal World Shopping Channel and their sister channel Create and Craft. For details of her next live show please check the TV shows page.
Joanna is always happy to hear from other card makers and will always help if you have any card-related queries that you would like answered. Email her on firstname.lastname@example.org
