About Me

Hi World!

I'M Joan

A lover of color, Joan Bixler’s artistic approach is Assertive, Fresh and Exuberant. She prefers to work on a larger scale, often with bold brushstrokes or shapes in bright hues — using color, form and texture to create the effect. 

 With a background in faux finishes, specialty painting, murals and graphic arts, her work is known to leverage various methods and textures for emphasis, such as gold leaf, iridescent paint and Venetian plaster. 

 Joan is a native Washingtonian and grew up in Northern Virginia and currently resides in McLean near Tysons Corner. She has three grown children and 4 grandchildren. Her decorative painting company, Bixler Studios, specializes in faux and Specialty painting, serving commercial clients in the Maryland, Virginia and DC area for the past 36 years. 

 Joan has a BFA in Fine Art and Graphic Design from American University. She is affiliated with Touchstone Gallery, DC, Falls Church Arts and Alexia Scott’s Studio in Falls church.

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
