Joan Dance | Creative Writer

My name is Joan (Joann) Edmonds Dance. I have been painting Folk Art for 21 years. My first painting was of a church in August of 1994. I paint from memory scenes and everyday life using African and American themes. I also do whimsical and comical renditions at times. 

Before I started painting I worked through my Sunday school church department by supervising all the seasonal and holiday programs. I wrote all the poems, dialogue and plays with Biblical themes. After trying many types of arts and craft projects, I finally settled on sketching and painting.

I have five grown children, ten grandchildren, and thirteen great grand children (some foster) but I claim them all. To view my folk art, log onto edmondsgallery or etsy  to purchase glossy copies of angles and other art pieces.
