Joanna Stribbling was born in Kent in 1983. She started painting at a young age but decided to pursue her ambitions to be a scientist. She gained A Levels in chemistry, biology and physics and was accepted by Imperial College to study Equine science.

After a year of study Joanna opted to take a gap year. It was during this time that she took up painting seriously and after immediate acclaim decided to pursue a career as an artist. Joanna is an exciting new talent and her ability to capture detail and light should ensure an illustrious career.
