After a successful career as an analytical chemist for a National Laboratory and at the same time in the cross-stitch industry, Joan started painting and educating herself about art licensing in the late 1990s. She also embraced the computer, and today is an expert in using Adobe PhotoShop and other applications to manipulate her art for specific products at her licensee’s request. Joan has created a robust body of art collections specifically for use on products. Her art has been licensed for numerous stationery, non-profit funding, gift and home décor products, including greeting cards, gift wrap, gift bags, wall décor, glass sun catchers, decorative flags and mailbox wraps. Joan’s popular blog (www.joanbeiriger.blogspot.com) features informative articles designed to educate those interested in the art licensing industry. It attracts hundreds of readers each week.
Joan lives in a northern California valley with her husband Bill. She is passionate about licensing her art and is constantly searching for information about the industry. She is a self-taught artist who has dabbled in arts and crafts all her life. She takes pride in creating art for products and partnering with manufacturers to produce trend forward products. Joan particularly loves to paint patriotic and Christmas themes besides flowers, butterflies, and birds which is reflected in many of her designs.
