On a planet seemingly hellbent on it’s own demise it is the inherent worth of the human that is the galvanizing theme in Jeanne’s art. Working from her own photos, found images, movie stills and directly from the figure, Jeanne draws on a lifetime of preternatural interests and investigations, working primarily in oil but also using watercolor, gouache, and drawing materials.
The artist lives and works in northwest Connecticut.
