Ioanna was raised in Lebanon alongside her four siblings. Being the eldest meant she had first dibs on reading her dad’s comic books, a great privilege! Born into a family of Architects and having witnessed first hand what it does to a person, her parents thought she was crazy when she claimed the profession as her calling. She holds a D.E.S. from the Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts, in Beirut; and since moving to the US, has put her multicultural heritage to use in enriching her work. When not taking notes of architectural details while exploring the City of Angels; you can find her immersed in a book, looming over her oven crafting delicious baked goods, or playing with rescues at the local dog shelter.
