About Me!

My name is Joanne Wesley and I am freelance artist and designer. My main love is paper crafting but I enjoy working in many new mediums and am always willing to try new things. My projects have been published numerous times in various magazines including PaperKuts, Better Homes & Gardens Scrapbooks Etc, PaperCrafts, Memory Makers, and Ivy Cottage. I was a member of the premiere PaperKuts Power Team in '01-'02 and continued to work with PaperKuts as a Staff Designer until 2005.

Some projects have made it to television including DIY Scrapbooking and HGTV's Carol Duvall Show. I'm a very big fan of Carol and was honored to have my project on her show and to meet her at HIA in 2002.

I designed for the Embossible Designs line of stickers and punch outs for WeRMemory Keepers for 5 years. I also illustrated a few children's books for the Lil Busy Hands series of board books. My books were sold internationally and published in different languages from around the world. The stickers, punch outs, and books were all hand cut and pieced with love...

In my free time I enjoy being a chauffeur, maid, short order cook, and personal servant to my three children. I love to spend time with my friends, volunteer at school and local charities, and read as much as possible. I am obsessed with my Ipad, probably spend too much time texting and talking on the phone..and love feeling connected to people on Facebook. I love Pearl Jam and have for the past 20 years. I travel to as many shows as I can. I love Eddie Vedder, which is probably the biggest understatement on this page. I have the best husband in the world and we have been together for more than half my life. Our family loves to travel and we enjoy seeing the countryside in our motorhome. We are blessed.
