As an early childhood educator, mom and grandma, I always thought I might be able to paint as I dabbled with paints in my classroom and enjoyed drawing for the kids.
When I retired, I bought an easel, canvases, paints and brushes and spent many happy hours experimenting! I was so amazed when the paints became shadow and light! They were like magic to me. With tips from artist friends, books and YouTube, my passion took off.
I sell my paintings online through Etsy, ArtPal.com, and my Facebook page (JoanieWarnerArt) and at local art shows and galleries
I love this new phase of life!
