Joan Correll Compton
Artist's statement:  Effective murals and the realism of trompe l'oeil require analytic capability balanced with strong artistic skills.  My degrees are in physics and computer science, but I also have a substantial background in visual arts.  This combination brings the precision of the scientist and the eye of an artist to all my work.
