Jeanne always had a creative side and by sixth grade she knew that she wanted to be an artist or “do something with computers.” In high school, her art teacher encouraged her to continue to develop her skills and submitted some of her work to several competitions, including those sponsored by The Boston Globe and the National Scholastic Art Awards. She earned nine “Certificates of Merit” and enjoyed seeing her work displayed alongside the work of her peers in various regional locations. This recognition, combined with scholarship opportunities and a presentation to her class from a representative of The Art Institute of Philadelphia, led her to apply to the school’s Graphic Design program. She was accepted and moved to Philadelphia a week before her 18th birthday.
Jeanne graduated from The Art Institute of Philadelphia, majoring in Graphic Design and Illustration. After studying art and living in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area for 35 years, Jeanne returned to her Cape Cod roots in 2020 and has been working to establish herself in the art community, with a renewed focus on creating images that capture the breathtaking beauty, the tranquil moments and the alluring charm of the villages, gardens and beaches of Cape Cod, The Islands. and other amazing New England places.
Jeanne’s work has won multiple awards on Fine Art America, and has been displayed at the Hyannis HyArts Artist Shanties, Sandwich Arts Alliance, Cultural Center of Cape Cod, Cape Cod Museum of Art, Falmouth Art Center and Centerville Historical Museum,.
