The Rhode Island Portrait Project Joan Dwyer of “All That Matters”
I have another installment of my very exciting portrait project. I love my community and there are some amazing people making Rhode Island a wonderful place to live. I have decided to photograph the people who are really making “IT” happen here in my community in a (hopefully) creative and fun way that tells a story about who those people are and what they are doing for their respective businesses.
This most recent portrait is of Joan Dwyer, the owner of All that matters which began in 1995 with a little yoga studio and a big vision, and has grown – under Joan’s guidance – into the largest non-residential holistic center in New England. Today more than 50 weekly yoga classes, an array of workshops, a retail store, and health care services ranging from acupuncture and chiropractic to massage therapy draw some 1000 visitors a week to Wakefield, Rhode Island.
