BIO Ė Dean Joanisse
Deanís involvement with curling goes well beyond his artwork. He has
been curling since the age of nine and has had some notable success
as a skip, winning the Canadian Junior title in 1989 and BC
Provincial Menís titles in 2001 and 2007 fulfilling his childhood
dream of curing in the Brier.
Dean never strayed far from the rink spending 17 years as an ice
tech, 6 years as a club professional and countless summers
instructing at curling camps.
Born and raised on Vancouver Island, Dean has always been drawn to
the natural beauty of the west coast which led him toward the
creation of limited edition orca whale prints. More recently, Dean
established a creative drawing concept called - Art of Curling -
uniting his passion for curling with the outdoors.
