While I paint primarily from direct observation, my commitment is to expressing my connection to the subject and not to producing an exact replica. This gives me license to invent and create.

Jeanne is a colorist at heart, color always plays a prominent role in her work. Impressionist in style, her work is distinguished by bold and distinctive brushwork. Her painting journeys take her to many beautiful locations including Europe, New England, and the American Southwest. Jeanne maintains a studio in Denver, and works outdoors every chance she gets.
