The Falvey Whiteboard Artist


Have you ever wondered who creates the fascinating drawings and caricatures on the whiteboard behind the circulation desk? Joanne Quinn, Access and User Assistance technician, is the artist responsible. It all began when Luisa Cywinski, the AUA team leader, asked her to create something for Balloon Day, April 15. From then on, Joanne has been using dry-erase markers to create whiteboard illustrations with topics appropriate to the particular day.

Joanne compared her work to sand art in that it is temporary. In her student days at Villanova, she was enrolled in the bachelor of fine arts program, where she received some of her artistic training, before she transferred to Communication.

    We get appreciative comments about Joanne’s artwork from library users on an almost daily basis. (Many ask for the name of the artist.) Her creations add a personal touch to our service desk.
