Joan Bankemper | Biography

Joan Bankemper was born in Covington, Kentucky in 1959.  She received a B.F.A. from Kansas City Art Institute, Missouri and an M.F.A. from the Maryland Institute College of Art, Mount Royal Graduate School, Baltimore.

The artist’s ceramic mosaic vessels grow out of 15 years of commitment to creating urban gardens with the help of surrounding communities.  She has worked on such projects in New York, Boston, Palermo, Italy and San Antonio, Texas, among others addressing the relationship of people to nature as reflected in the contemporary urban landscape. Bankemper’s ceramic mosaics depict her love of nature and its transformations as the seasons change. Flowers, birds, bees, symbols of the garden, and the creatures that help pollinate and cross-pollinate the flowers are staccato notes on virtually all of her vessels.
