Friday Freebie for January 22nd

Welcome to another Friday Freebie!
It is with great pleasure this week that I introduce you to Joann Wheeler of Painted Panache!
1.What is the name of your shoppe and how did you choose this name?
My shop url is jywheeler.etsy.com however I call it Painted Panache by Joann Y Wheeler. It seemed an appropriate name because I am a painter and artist & in particular the porcelain adds a bit of Panache to any home. As an artist it seemed just natural to have my name be a part of it.
2.What types of items do you create?
I am a painter so all my items are hand-painted. I hand paint porcelain (china painting) and miniature art (ACEO's) in various art mediums. You can also find decorative painting on wood and glass in my shop.
3.How long have you been crafting?
My goodness. It's been a very long time. Over 20 years I am sure. Although I've always painted and drawn as far back as I can remember into childhood.
4.What is your favorite item in your shoppe? Why?
I don't have a particular favorite item. In general I love the porcelain art primarily because it's one of those things that can be handed down for generations. Each piece is painted numerous times as the colors are built up and fired in between in a kiln. This means the paints are fired into the glaze and are permanent and dishwasher safe.
5.Who or what inspires your creativity?
I'm inspired by God and His creation. I absolutely LOVE to paint flowers and religious art. 6.What else would you like our readers to know about you?
I am a retired mother of 2 grown children, grandmother of 1 and wife of 34 years to my high school sweetheart from Pasadena Maryland.
As a special treat to our readers, Joann has so graciously donated this lovely hand-painted china tea bag holder to one of our lucky readers:
Description:
Handpainted porcelain tea bag holder. Size 4". Porcelain itself is a leaf design with raised veins. Painted on the teabag holder is a single blue morning glory. This lovely piece can also be used for a spoon rest or rings holder. Very versatile. Dishwasher safe.
