ESCONDIDO, Calif. -- Joanne Stephens has been drawing since she could hold a pencil, but it is her love of animals that inspires her artistic creations. Stephens¹ art stands out from others because of the personality and expression that she captures, bringing her characters to life! Her latest creative endeavor is Joannimals™, a line of whimsical magnetic note and calendar pads depicting brightly colored illustrations of horses. An irresistible line of Joannimals cats and dogs will join the family in early 2005.
Joannimals are practically guaranteed to make people smile, and just the thing for taking the pressure off getting organized! Stephens and her husband share a small Southern California ranch with a menagerie of three cats, three dogs and three horses. Although Joannimals are brightly colored yellows, blues, pinks, greens and purples, you can see the resemblance and personality of her brood shining through.
Managing nine animals, and having been a competitive Hunter-Jumper rider and successful business woman, Stephens designed the weekly calendar pads to keep track of any and every detail including events, deworming schedules, lessons, shots, shoeing, veterinary appointments, or the kids¹ soccer games and carpool schedule. The magnetic backing allows you to keep the calendar in full view either stuck on the refrigerator or filing cabinet, or sitting on a desk or in the barn. The smaller magnetic list pads are available in eight charming designs and handy to have at home, in the car, at the office, in the barn or in the kids¹ school lockers for to-do lists or to send a colorful note.
Prior to penning Joannimals, Stephens created and manufactured a successful line of equestrian rubber stamps called ³Hoofprints" with more than 250 designs that were sold nationwide. To locate a dealer or place an order, call (760) 480-4192 or go to Joannimals at www.joannimals.com.
