  1. From fellow artist, Murry Handler: "When I met Joan and we discovered that her early teacher, Diana Kan, was also a friend of mine, we bonded immediately.
    I felt as if Joan was one of my oldest, dearest friends even though we spoke only infrequently.
    Each time I saw any of her brush drawings I realized how much I had to learn."
