Biography


Award winning artist Jeanne Edwards has lived in the Northwest for over 25 years. She received a degree in graphic design and illustration from the Rocky Mountain School of Art in Denver, Colorado.She worked as an art director/ illustrator for various design and advertising agencies, eventually co-owning a graphic design firm.
 
After returning to fine art, she traveled and studied under several nationally acclaimed artists. Her work has shown in both group and solo exhibitions throughout the United States.
 
Her paintings reflect the way she works by using the language of the brushstroke with color and vitality. Her style is loose and she prefers to suggest reality rather than render it. "I love to paint humanity capturing the emotions of the people and the character of the places that inspire me most. I am drawn to the beauty and descriptive quality of light, and intrigued by the day-to-day events in our fast-paced world. It is more about what I feel inside - an emotional connection. I think of my paintings as studies - the process never ends with always more to discover."
From 2015 -2018  Took a break from the art world - View "Paintings for Kenya" in the Navigation Bar above.
