Joan Peconcillo

Art Craft Creator/ Teacher



Hi! I’m Joan Peconcillo from the Philippines. I enjoy creating arts and crafts since I was a child. This is becoming my pastime with my siblings because we don’t have toys to play with. We created our own toys from the materials that we can see in our house and it was our aunt who introduced us to these fun creative innovations.

I’m grateful that I was still able to continue creating art crafts as an adult. I currently own a paper quilling online store and I’m also a part-time art and craft content creator for parenting and craft blogs and Youtube channels. Moreover, I am also a virtual online teacher in the same niche.

In my class, I want to highlight the Philippine culture, tradition, and values in a form of kid’s art and craft... See full profile
