An artist and surface designer, Joni Barriere grew up in San Francisco. Influenced by the cultural mix of that city, she loved to draw, paint, and create. As a young artist, she was happiest while participating in the painting of storefront holiday window scenes which was a yearly event sponsored by neighborhood businesses. Her artwork was chosen several years in a row for this community project. 

Her love of color, textiles, and mixed media artwork continued through a work life that has been a blend of educational administration, art educator, and environmental graphic designer. 

Academic training as an artist has included fine art coursework, visual communication and graphic design, and digital arts. More recent training includes surface pattern design.

Currently, Joni is at the drawing board creating artwork (both hand drawing and digital design) to add to her portfolio for commercial use in home decor, giftware, stationery, and the textile markets.
