Painted Earth unlocks natural glow

Article Published: Sep. 20, 2012 | Modified: Sep. 20, 2012

This week, ArtWalk’s featured artist is Joanne McClure, owner of Painted Earth Inc.

A different type of art, McClure’s beauty products bring restorative health and beauty through natural and organic active ingredients.

Her “Vanuatu Tamanu Oil” has been featured on the “Dr. Oz” show and is now available at ArtWalk. Tamanu nut oil is a natural substance that has been used medicinally for thousands of years. An anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, Tamanu nut oil is considered effective for the treatment of numerous skin conditions.

Visitors to ArtWalk may also find Painted Earth’s “Blueberry/Cranberry Oxygen Scrub Boo Boo Gel” and “Moisture Treatment for Sensitive/Acne Skin.”

McClure is also the creator of Beer Wax, recycled glassware made from wine, beer, liquor and soda bottles recycled from homes, restaurants, bars and events in the community. Her repurposed candles are all eco-friendly and feature a wide variety of scents and bottles to chose from and collect.

Joanne’s organic beauty products and Beerwax candles can be found at ArtWalk, located at 611 W. King St. (across from Mast General Store) in downtown Boone. For more information, or to inquire about individual gallery booths for rent, call (828) 264-9998, email ( or visit
