Born in the Sonoran Desert to an American mother and Canadian father, Joan grew up in the scorching heat and lone setting of vast barren land, which was littered with cacti. She recalls having an early fixation with the sound of cicadas at the dusk of every summer. In this lone setting, she was infatuated with art of all kinds—visual, musical, conceptual... During her childhood, she painted many oil paintings, filled many sketch books, and she even found an undying love playing the cello.
