Biography


A multi-faceted artist, Jeanne Crain Leemon paints still-life, landscapes and figures, in both oil and pastel.  Her paintings are executed with a classical approach by slowly building form and light through multiple layers of paint.  Throughout this process, she develops deep colors and rich textures, ultimately bringing the subject to life.  "What I strive to impart in my work is an appreciation for beauty in all things, and a feeling of peace and tranquility.  My paintings usually originate with something that I connect with and find beautiful, which I am compelled to express in paint."
 
Jeanne is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America, and also a juried member of the Oil Painters of America (OPA) and the International Guild of Realism.
