Friday Feature With JYWheeler

1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?
   Painted Panache by Joann Y Wheeler. I choose that name because that's the name I have had my business under since I began painting porcelain in 1986. Panache is defined as distinctive and stylish elegance.  The word seemed to fit especially with my hand painted porcelain.
2. How long have you been on Etsy?
   Since February 2007
3. What type of items do you offer?
   My shop features hand painted porcelain (china painting), decorative painting on wood and glass, and miniature art (ACEO's) in various mediums.
4. How long have you been crafting?
    For at least 30 years.
   5. Who or What inspires you?
   Nature. I love to paint flowers and animals. God inspires me. I enjoy doing religious paints as well.  I'm one of those people who cannot paint unless inspired by something.
6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why?
   I can't say that I have one thing that is my absolute favorite. Every time I get one, it seems like someone buys it!  However, I do tend to favor my hand painted porcelain because I believe it's one of those things that you can pass down for generations to come.
7. Other places where you can be found (Ebay, webstore, blog)
