About Joanne

Joanne Hastie is an artist based in Vancouver BC, Canada. Her focus is using technology to be more creative. In her current work she uses robotics, programming and paint to create art.

For over a decade she worked as an R&D Engineer in various small companies while painting on evenings and weekends. She kept both careers very separate as they have very different communities and expertise…. until recently.

Joanne’s first tech-art project was with a small desktop robotic arm and she taught herself to code in Python. This work earned her a 5th place in the 2018 International Robot Art competition and international press. Her latest work of Machine Learning Curation was shown at NeurIPS 2018 conference in Montreal, Canada and at the 2019 Women in Data Science Conference in Zurich Switzerland.
