Born and raised in Massachusetts, Joan Welch has been taking photographs for nearly forty years. Residing on the South Shore near Cape Cod, Joan’s work focuses primarily on the natural beauty found in New England through local landscapes, seascapes, flora and everyday life.  Joan’s portfolio also includes photos from international travel including trips to Aruba and Croatia.

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 are from 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. Joan will have her work on display at many upcoming shows throughout the year.
