About Me

I've been gone a year -- so happy to return!!!

Enjoying acrylic pours, gelli plate, collage art, sewing, making handmade papers, mosaics, quilts and now these Artistamps!

I started an outreach program in the Houston area, to teach people how to make Autism Weighted Blankets (helps cope with sensory processing challenges). I created a step-by-step manual for those who want to help sew and find families in the area who have children with Autism, Asperger's, etc. to give them a lap quilt for FREE. I want to make their day a little brighter! Always happy to receive cotton fabric for the quilts and fleece (we use inside the blankets and surround the weights).

I love doing travel photography - many of my photos are used for art backgrounds -- check out my ETSY store "myparismoon". I was also fortunate that some of my sports photos have been picked up by ESPN. I love capturing moments in time!

My real name is Genevieve, pronounced "John-v-ev", it is French and usually mispronounced, so my hubby thought up "Johny". We have four kids...ranging from 13 to 33 and two granddaughters that we enjoy very much.
