....that is the question? So many of my crafter and artist friends blog. They tell me, it's the thing to do, the place to be.....be seen girl, they say. Well I AM a chatterbox or that's what my Mom always told me so maybe I will be good at this!
So who am I, what am I, what do I do? Hi, nice to meet you I am Joann Y Wheeler of Pasadena, Maryland. I am retired and working part time on contract back for my former employer. I have a wonderful husband of 32 years and 2 grown children in their 20's who I am very proud of.
My passion is painting. My joke is I will paint on anything, stand still long enough and I'll paint you too! I am a decorative painter, a china painter, a watercolorist. I enjoy pastels and colored pencils and drawing of course.
Over the past year or so I have gotten into painting miniature art, ACEO's. Sell my things on Etsy.com....come visit my shop jywheeler.etsy.com Here's one I really like I hold memberships in the Society of Decorative Painters, Chesapeake Bay Decorative Painters, International Porcelain Artists and Teachers, China Painting Artists of Maryland.
On Etsy I belong to a team called Old Farmhouse Gathering....search for OFG for all the beautiful Primitive and Cottage style things from these talented women. I lean towards the cottage side of "the gathering".
I also belong to a group called the Designing Artists Women's Group. This group is a very talent bunch too, mostly painters, our friendship formed as a result of an Ebay Group called AOTC-Artist of Trading Cards. Many of these ladies do more than just ACEO's. Some do larger pieces of art. We also have some who do religious art, photography and even poetry. Please search for DAWG on ETSY.com you will not be disappointed.
