JoAnn Telemdschinow

“I am a largely self-taught digital collage artist and photographer. My artwork is influenced by my love of the art and architecture of the past, but also by my interest in travel, history, and mythology. I strive to make my finished pieces both visually appealing as well as atmospheric, evoking a specific mood. I have displayed my work in a number of galleries and exhibitions, in New Jersey and in other states and have won awards in juried shows, such as the Annual Juried Art Show by the New Jersey State Bar Foundation and the New Brunswick Free Public Library’s Annual Visual Arts Contest. In addition, I have sold a number of my pieces to private collectors.”
