Biography


Jeanne Reavis has been interested in art all her life.  After graduating from Oklahoma State University, she worked for Federated Department Stores for 35 years both in Dallas & in Houston. Her husband, Robert, opened their family business - Robert’s China-in 1995. She retired from the hectic corporate world in 2002 & began following her dreams.
 
Jeanne quickly picked up her brushes again, and began taking drawing and painting classes. She enrolled in painting workshops around the country, and is fortunate to have a supportive husband, who loves to fly fish and travel. She joined Outdoor Painters Society (that holds monthly paint outs) and has recently been awarded her Signature Status. For the past two years, she has co-ordinated with the Katy Independent High Schools an annual Plein Air Competition for 3 top students from 8 schools. This introduction to outdoor painting at the high school level is unique in art education in the U. S.
She has participated in numerous plein air events & national juried shows and has paintings in private collections throughout Texas, the United States and abroad. She paints in her Houston studio, as well as anywhere anytime she can paint outside. Jeanne shows her work exclusively at Robert’s China.
 
Jeanne is always looking for new answers to the hundreds of questions she asks of herself. Her oil paintings certainly have a story,  and it is her joy to share that with you.
