About Jo-An Frances

Designer, Chinese Brush Painter, Curator
When Jo-An moved to St. Petersburg, Florida she decided to leave corporate America and focus on her 25 years of training as an artist and designer, she wanted to maximize her many studio and gallery experiences in the USA, China and Japan.

Shop Thrifty Treasures came about out of Jo-An’s design and curating training. The site was built on the idea that you should be able to purchase high quality items at a reasonable price. We believe you don't have to pay a lot to receive the quality items you deserve if you know how to discern fine from mediocre. The best part is we'll do it for you! Jo-An curates each item, whether vintage or brand new. Most items are one-of-a-kind and quality, design elements as well as value are hallmarks of her collections.

On the Portfolio tab on the website is a selection of Jo-An’s Chinese Brush Paintings. Clicking the images takes you to pages where you may connect with her and connect with products made from those paintings for purchase.

She has studied with such renowned Oriental Brush painters as Master Diana Kan, Master Zhuo HeJun, Master Wenda Gu, Henry Wo Yue-Kee, and Ning Yeh, Ph.D. Jo-An continues to study under Mayee Futterman, a disciple of Ning Yeh PhD.

Frances was president of the Massachusetts Sumi-e chapter, is a member of The Sumi-e Society of America and the Sarasota, FL chapter. Today she teaches beginners classes in St. Petersburg, Florida at the Morean Arts Center. https://moreanartscenter.org/classes/chinese-brush-painting-with-jo-an-thomas/
