How often are you the first among your friends to try something new?
What do you want people to know most about you?
My name is Joan Marie Giampa and I am from Washington, DC. I was born in Arlington, Virginia. I received an Doctor of Arts from George Mason University in 2012, an MFA in painting from the University of Maryland in 1998 and a BFA in graphic design from James Madison University in 1983. I teach design, painting and drawing at Northern Virginia Community College, and Multi-Media 345, and 445 at George Mason University.
