Hindeloopen & Fantasy: Joan Wheatley

Joan recently added miniature hand-sculpted resin mice and friends to her line. In addition, she designs whimsical Collectors Cases, creates original oil paintings, and makes a line of prints from her original paintings. joansweetrees@bellsouth.net, www.joansweetrees.com
