Acrylic Painter

Artisan Jane Hannon with Great Danes Vegas and MarbleJane Hannan has always been creative.  Her latest art form is acrylic painting on glass, recycled wood, and other “found” objects.  Jane is self-taught, thanks to the many online instructors who graciously share their techniques.  Since the onslaught of Covid-19, painting has been an excellent way to stay creative and be safe.

Jane is a retired Elementary School Counselor who worked in education for 40 years.  She enjoyed the variety of tasks involved in being a counselor, including problem-solving and creative thinking.  She taught children’s craft classes during the summers, teaching about conservation, recycling, and nature through crafts. Her previous art forms include polymer clay, knitting, quilting, crocheting, and decoupage, to name a few.  Jane loves color and nature which provide an endless source of inspiration.

Jane enjoys painting on recycled pallet wood and glass items such as vases, bottles, old windows, and wine glasses.  The wooden items can be hung on a wall or displayed outside as “yard art”.  Recently Jane painted designs on candles and votive candle holders. She is always looking for new ideas, watch for Wind Chimes coming soon!

Jane’s painted items, displayed at the Craft Gallery of Artisans United just off Hummer Road in Annandale, are colorful and whimsical.  She loves getting ideas from customers and friends since the creative process makes her happy!  She has been told that her artwork makes others feel happy and uplifted.  Jane is excited to be a new artist at Artisans United.  She loves the energy there and the creativity of the other artists.  Please drop by!

The Craft Gallery of Artisans United is a cooperative endeavor, staffed and run by the independent members of Artisans United, Inc.  as well as those individuals belonging to the member Guilds.  On a daily basis, visitors will find the Gallery artisans happy to explain crafting techniques and to share their knowledge of where craft materials may be obtained.  And, too, visitors will often discover impromptu demos in progress as the artists complete their creations.   We are always looking for new craftspeople to join our organization. If you are interested in joining us as a member artist, please ask at the front desk for a membership packet which explains the  process.

If you are looking for gifts, please visit the Gallery where you will find an exceptional range of items appropriate for baby, wedding, mother’s day, father’s day, graduation and housewarming gifts, or a special treat for yourself.

Artisans United continues to look for new areas in which to share their love and knowledge of crafts as they are tasked with taking arts out into the community.  If your organization would like a speaker or demonstrator, please contact them.  Support this Gallery as it is the last home to artisan wares in Annandale.  We should all seek to protect their heritage and survival.
