Stained glass artist. Joan Fulleylove was the daughter of English painter John Fulleylove and his wife Elizabeth Elgood of Leicester, England. Her brother, Christopher Fulleylove, was also an artist.
She studied art at the Slade from 1907-09, trained under Karl Parsons, and had close links with the stained glass studio of Mary Lowndes and Alfred Drury. Eventually, she began creating her own designs as part of the Arts and Crafts Movement. She designed and created the windows of the Anglican Cathedral in Khartoum, Sudan, in partnership with Mabel Esplin. These windows are now part of the Republican Palace Museum in Khartoum.
Among her other works were the apse windows of Christ, St. George, and twelve other saints in St. George's Chapel (the "Warriors' Chapel) at the Church of St. Peter in Bushy Heath, Hertfordshire. She also created the memorial window to Frederick Haeffner at St John-at-Hampstead, Church Row, London, and a memorial window to her sister Margaret (Marjorie) Keturah Fulleylove Thornley and brother-in-law, the Rev. Alfred Thornley, at St. Anta and All Saints in Carbis Bay, Cornwall. In addition to her work in stained glass, she also painted and designed woodcuts.
She was a strong supporter of the Women's Movement for Suffrage, and she designed banners, posters, and other art for their demonstrations and marches.
A stained glass window she designed for the Church of St Mary the Virgin in Barnham, West Sussex, serves as a memorial to her there. It was made in 1949 and shows the Crucifixion, the Flight into Egypt, the Adoration of the Magi, and the Visitation of the Virgin Mary to St. Elizabeth.
She had her own studio in Hampstead before moving to Henfield in the 1930s, where she spent the rest of her life. Her home was Crabtree Cottage.
Joan died at Clarens near Montreux, Switzerland, on January 1, 1947.
