Artist Bio:

Jeanne captures her love of nature and science in watercolors. She believes that anyone, with enough curiosity for life, can learn to create and be an artist. Jeanne is an art educator and practicing artist since earning a bachelor’s degree in Art Education in 1969 from Murray State University. Jeanne has sought to share her vision and to teach others to discover their own. Over the years, she has taught in the public and private schools, The Discovery Center, an Art and Science Museum; The Crealde Center, summer workshops for the Orlando Museum of Art, and Inter-sessions at Seminole Community College. She has had a K-12 Teacher Certificate in Ohio, Florida, and Georgia. She also has been a popular private teacher of children and adults. Jeanne has exhibited her works in Georgia, The Art Station and The Butterfly Studio in Stone Mountain Village, and at the Georgia State Capital Exhibit. Jeanne is a recent – and already involved – citizen of Clayton, having moved here from the Atlanta area in 2017.
