Artist Statement

My name is Joanne Smith and I've lived in Maine for most of my life. As the years go by, I can't imagine living anywhere else. I want to combine motion graphics, animation, photography and post-production to help individuals and business tell their stories.


Visual storyteller valued for strong work ethic, organization, creativity, communication and dependability.
