Agave chrysantha, Ink and Watercolor by Joan McGann
Focusing on lithography and drawing, Joan McGann received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1974 from Wichita State University. In 2008, she received a Certificate of Excellence from the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum Art Institute Nature Illustration Certificate Program. She works with her husband in their landscape architectural firm that specializes in natural resource management planning, park planning and design, and urban design. Joan works almost exclusively on paper with graphite, colored pencil, and, more recently, watercolor and pen and ink. Current works in botanical illustration have an emphasis on plants native to the Sonoran Desert.
