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.
