About the Artist

Studiobrushes3.jpg Jeanette is an artist whose paintings are inspired by a love for nature, particularly the mountainous and forested areas in northern New Hampshire and Vermont.  Growing up with family ties in both the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont and the White Mountains of New Hampshire, she spent a great deal of time in the woods, observing and then drawing what she saw there.  Living in an area of protected forests, rugged wilderness and a unique mix of farmlands with small village communities, she developed a strong connection to her natural surroundings.  It has had a direct influence on her decision to focus on painting animals and birds.  She wants her artwork to remind people of the importance of having the natural world around us and the importance of saving it.  This is what inspires her work and is what she tries to capture in her paintings.

She is a self-taught artist who specializes in watercolor paintings of animals, birds and nature, which reflect a distinct and original style not commonly found with this medium. Her meticulous attention to detail and her illustrative style are the hallmarks of her work. 

Her work has been accepted to the "Art of the Animal Kingdom", the "Adirondack National Exhibition of American Watercolors" and the North East Watercolor Society Annual International Exhibition, three prestigious national art exhibitions in New England. She has also exhibited with The Society of Animal Artists. Her art has received several awards and is included in private collections in New England and beyond.

She is a Signature member of the North East Watercolor Society and the Vermont Watercolor Society, an Associate Member of the Society of Animal Artists and the Women's Rural Entrepreneurial Network.
