Illustrator & Artist — Oregon City, Oregon
Jeanne grew up in California, riding her horse in the Castro Valley foothills, and later lived much of her life in the Midwest, eventually settling in the NW. Jeanne has a Bachelors in Biological/Wildlife Illustration and worked as a private contractor illustrating for the USDA, national magazines, and for various scientific, medical, university, and commercial communities. Since moving to the NW in 2000, she has also worked as a RN in Oncology and Palliative Care.
Jeanne’s training as a biological illustrator, attention to detail, strong connection with the natural world, and love of and lifetime experience with horses translate into her work as an artist. Over the years Jeanne has produced and exhibited award winning original equine, animal, and Western Art pieces. While Jeanne initially worked in acrylics and watercolor, it was graphite and colored pencils that allowed her produce highly realistic, texture rich compositions. Horses and her love of nature and wildlife remain a strong theme in her beautifully detailed, expressive images.
Jeanne is an Associate, Women Artists of the West and American Academy of Equine Art, and a member of the Colored Pencil Society of America.
