Biography


“It’s in my blood, I can’t help it! I have always wanted to re-create the beauty around me, even if it was something as simple as a feather in a parking lot or a mountain in the Grand Tetons.  I know, there is no creator like God but acknowledging the gifts we have been given is essential to me.  After retiring from the Texas Public School System, I have discovered my opportunity to create again.  Finding joy in the expression of an old soul who may be a cowboy, young child or the way the light bounces off glass and items I’ve collected from the past, I am constantly vigilant of emotions provoked by my surroundings. Being able to express these glimpses of life has been a desire and a goal.”
 
Mary Jean (Jeannie) Davis has over thirty years teaching experience in the public schools and has taught private lessons in her home, at Longview Museum of Fine Arts and the Marshall Visual Arts Center.  She also gives workshops in drawing skills and pastels.  Working primarily in soft pastels, she has had her work accepted in National and International shows from Cape Cod, MA., New York City, Sedona, AZ., Texas, to Santa Fe, New Mexico. She even has collectors as far away as India.
 
She grew up in Shreveport, Louisiana and earned her BFA in Art Education with Cum Laude honors at Louisiana Tech University. Retired from public school teaching, she currently lives in Texas, but loves to travel and is constantly learning.  Carrie Ellen Montgomery, her great grandmother, studied under Grant Wood while she attended the Stone City Art Colony in Chicago, Ill.  Mary Jean’s ‘gifts’ as an artist have often been attributed to her.
