Joanne Burke has a unique skill as an artist. The Lake Placid woman creates holiday displays using acrylic paints and storefront windows as her canvases. Burke’s artwork can be seen throughout town at establishments such as Above and Beyond and A Cut Above hair salons, Cow Pie’s and Schooni’s restaurants, and Wings of Eagles Christian Books.

Burke, who prefers to be called “Miss Jo,” has been painting Lake Placid windows for about five years now. She creates seasonal and holiday motifs and a few year-round pieces. She recently finished an Independence Day theme on the big glass windows at the Schooni’s entrance.
