Meet Joanna, she is a Canadian living in Belize, Central America and also a graphic designer. Woodworking and sign design is her newest crafting passion but art has been in her blood since birth.
I've always had a thing for frogs, so I love this little card. It is an original pencil crayon illustration of a red eye tree frog (Agalichnis callindyas). These frogs breed in isolated ponds in lowland forest habitats. It is drawn on watercolor paper and is signed and dated on the back. Her signs are also wonderful. I love this one with the beach chair. I live near Galveston, TX and love the beach, so when I have my own beach house, I'll have to comission one to welcome my guests!!!
Please feel free to contact her if you have a particular sign you would like her to make for you.
I started making jewelry over 10 years ago during college when a family friend that is a jeweler taught me how to string pearls. After that I tried to teach myself everything I could about making beaded jewelry. I am self-taught, definitely not the "artsy" type. As you can probably tell, most of my jewelry is pretty classic in style. I earned my master's degree in Occupational Therapy, and I am able to incorporate crafts and beads into therapy at times with my patients.
I am a mother of two small children (13 months, and 2 1/2)that is enjoying staying at home with them while they are young. In doing so, I have been able to pick back up with my jewelry business that I love.
