Jann Alexander-McCullough- An artist of many talents

Let me introduce you to a member of our eSMARts team that I have had the pleasure of becoming friends with. Her name is Jann Alexander-McCullough. Jann was born in Arizona and is currently living in Glendale. She started her artistic life at age 23 by doing almost all the traditional mediums. Her first job was a Creative Art Director, which kept her busy into her 30's.

Now Jann makes jewelry for the Rubenesque woman, Hot glass, Painted glass, Fused glass , Sterling silver wire work, chainmalle to name a few. She also does crocheted jewelery with Sterling Silver wire, or yarn, seed beading, embroidery beading, crochet, sew, pencil draw and watercolor painting -

Jann has three areas where she creates, her husband turned a spare bedroom into a fine arts studio where she sews, beads, crochets and everything else except for her glass work. She creates most of her projects from a Lazyboy with all her items around her. Jann has just recently found her love for jewelry design





These are just a few of the items that Jan makes, and as you can tell she does a beautiful job and is a very talented artist. Jann also belongs to several Art Leagues, has done many shows both juried and non juried, has won many awards and sold many paintings and drawings with watercolors and pencils being her favorite medium. Now her favorite medium is glass, her torch, her kilns and wire and jewelry making. A Woman of many many talents.

If you get a chance please visit Jann Alexander McCullough's Webb page is http://phoenixrisingglassart@cox.net. Also be sure to stop by her Etsy shop to see many more wonderful creations !!! http://jannadu.etsy.com. This multi talented artist has caught my eye, and makes me think I don't have enough crafts going at one time!

For relaxation Jann visits her children and grandchildren and she and her husband go out to dinner once a week. Her favorite colors are purple and deep jewel tones, and her love for crafts shows in everything she does. So this is Jann Alexander-McCullough a very multi talented artist.

I'm always amazed when I see someone who is so incredibly talented in more than one "area" or type of work---drawing, painting, textiles and jewelry---what great talents! I'm so glad I've been able to get to know her thru the eSMArts team! It's great to get to know people from all over the world and work with them on our etsy team. Teri Twitter: Teri_B

Hi Wilma! Thanks for stopping by abeadaday! I love meeting new craftspeople and I have a special place in my heart for bead makers. I had a chance to check out your etsy site and your beads and it makes me wish I had learned how to make them too! I just love the torched glass effects! Your universe beads are my favorite and I think I have to pop back over and see if they are still available. Take care, Lisa C.
