Born and raised in Massachusetts, Joan Welch has been taking photographs for over forty years. Joan’s photography focuses primarily on the natural beauty found in New England through local landscapes, seascapes, flora and everyday life.
Joan also makes what she calls Beach Art which are unique art pieces using glass and stone to create handmade, one-of-a-kind works of art. Joan’s beach art pieces feature natural materials, and many include beach glass and beach stones found on local beaches. Some pieces are framed, and others are created using repurposed wood.
