About the author

Joelle Dietrick is an American artist based in Florida. After living overseas in Italy, Bahrain, Germany and China, she became inspired by the unusual stories of female expatriates.

She has attended residencies at the Künstlerhaus Salzburg, Anderson Ranch, the Banff Center, and the School of the Visual Arts and received fellowships from the University of California, Florida State University, the Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst (DAAD) and the National Endowment for the Arts. ---------------------------------------------- A set of framed prints and one site-specific wall painting or animation could be ideal at one of the embassies. The shift from small prints to large historical temporary wall painting mirrors last century's change from an isolationist stance to an interest in global concerns.
