From joonbeam’s profile on Etsy.com:
“I love scissors! Maybe it’s the Boo Radley in me. I don’t know. I love rescuing things, especially if someone else deems them trash worthy. My special affinity is vintage fabrics, notions, trinkets and papers, although I will incorporate any intriguing castaway, regardless of age. I love collage and cobbling things together. I believe that the small stuff does matter. One person can make a difference. And character and environment are everything. Truth be told, I'm a little bit obsessive about saving tiny bits of everything. I think character lives large in small. I find comfort and encouragement in clipping; snipping and finding a new life for would be discards. I hope my creations pass this along."
I met joonbeam on Etsy.com about a month or so ago in BBEST, Boomers Team forum thread. “Joon” as most of us call her, has started a new line of painting on old book covers. She recycles the book and uses the cover as the recipient of her truly colorful, original paintings. She told me the other day that she, “…hadn’t painted anything like this in 35 years” but completed her first and was moving onto another. (Both are viewed here) I think you have something here, Joon!
In my opinion, Joon’s work is new, fresh and filled with energy. Her boldly colored, eco-friendly art is affordable to most people on budgets and you get an original piece of art from a wonderful artist! Go to http://www.joonbean.etsy.com to see her other recycled work. You might want to hurry because those two paintings won’t be there for long!Also visit joon's blog: http://joonbeam.blogspot.com/
