Nantucket Baskets

Joan Pinney is an adoptive native of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. With a degree in fine arts, Joan has always been inspired by beauty and function. Joan loves to create art that is not just admired but functional and used by the owner. Originally from Winter Park, Florida, Joan and her husband (a native New Englander) have two golden retrievers, Zoe and Bizby, and a confused cat Oggie who goes by the name Dude. Dude acts as Joan’s personal assistant and design consultant.
Joan is also an active member of The National Basketry Organization, Inc., and The National Association of Independent Artists. She has been actively creating baskets since 1997.
