Joann Thompson grew up in a family of artists and eventually began painting wall murals for residential and retail space as well as custom pieces of furniture for a variety of clients. Eventually she became an illustrator for Weekly Reader which was followed by her discovery of hand-painted ceramic pieces where she specializes in platters, wedding charger plates and one of a kind Christmas ornaments. In 2007 Joann was commissioned by the Food Network to paint a series of country French tiles for the backsplash of a kitchen renovation program called All-Star Kitchen Makeover with celebrity chef Paula Deen.
