Still a humbled artist, Joanne Hoch started her art career after graduating from Cottey College in the late 1950's and becoming employed by Hallmark Cards as a greeting card designer.
After her marriage, she and her husband moved from Kansas City to Oklahoma City to start an Interior Design firm.
Joanne was instrumental in creating not only most of the art for the interiors but also painting 'renderings' to use for presentations to clients.
Even in retirement Interior design is still an integral part of her life as she still assists clients.
She still paints as well when she isn't caring for a ill friend or being of service to her church members and friends.
