Joan Chiverton

Joan Chiverton studied at the School of Visual Arts.  She was born into art with a father working as an artist and her mother a writer.  She worked for many years as an illustrator and was an award winning art director with ad agencies in New York City and upstate New York where she moved to raise her three children.  She did work for many companies including, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Harvard Magazine, and McDonald’s.  

Joan learned printmaking at the School of Visual Arts.  Today she prefers etching to the other processes she learned.  Her prints are generally hand wiped “a la Poupee.”  She teaches at the Fashion Institute of Technology, Bard Graduate Center Gallery and privately.

She serves on the boards of The Society of Illustrators and The Society of American Graphic Artists.  She has exhibited at The Society of Illustrators, The Society of American Graphic Artists annual exhibitions, Jazz Textures, Sacred Gallery, and Monmouth Museum.

Every spring, Joan organizes a group of illustrators to raise money for the Dog Walk for Cancer. Each year they've had more artists involved, doing quick sketches of pets for donations.
