I'm Joanna Ward, the creative director (and smile) behind Hedgy & Company. Founded in 2019, Hedgy maintains a laser-focus: helping artists, gallery owners and other creative professionals grow their art businesses without compromising studio time. From social media management, website and graphic design to digital newsletters and contact list management, Hedgy is ready to partner with you.
Hedgy headquarters is in Wilmington, NC, where I raise three rambunctious boys with endless creativity. Born in Charleston, SC, I graduated from Duke University in 2006 with a Linguistics Degree. During my time at Duke, I worked for both the Duke University Museum of Art, Nasher Museum of Art at Duke and Center for Documentary Studies. Upon moving to Wilmington, I spent the better part of five years working for the Cameron Art Museum in various capacities, including Deputy Director of Operations, Membership Manager and Volunteer Program Coordinator.
It is with this rich background in data management, analytics, critical thinking, organization and design, that Hedgy operates. I am honored to have partnered with more than 50 artists across three countries providing professional fine art marketing support and collateral materials.
