"The essential function of sensation is to establish that something exists, thinking tells us what it means, feeling what its value is, and intuition surmizes whence it comes and whither it goes." -C.G Jung

Joanna Walling holds a BA in Art from University of California at Santa Cruz and an MA in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute.

Her photography and writing is inspired by the transformative and mythological nature of the social and physical environment around her. She uses the medium of photography to explore perception and illusion as a gateway to both unconscious content and conscious desire. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally and lives and works in Southern California.
