I reside in Orange County California. My mother started me out with paint by number oils as a child. She paid for my first oil painting class when I was in 8th grade. She is a wonderful mother. She will surprise me at a show by buying my handpainted greeting cards (www.jeanettedesigns.com) but usually she receives free artwork.
I have a Bachelors of Fine Art degree. My subject matter is still life florals, birds and bugs. I paint christian and messianic themes that tell a story. An oil painting I'm doing is of Jerusalem with crown of thorns flowers, tallet, menorah, rams horn still life will be donated to a T.V. ministry that helps holocaust survivors. I am hoping they will do prints and I will keep my followers apprised of where to obtain them. You will see oils on canvas or watercolors of local land or seascapes. And an occasional horse, equine art, that I dearly love to do. And currently is my first limited edition giclee print of an equine painting that was juried in and sold at the prestiges Orange County Fair Grounds Show.
Another collection that has sold in galleries, high end gift shops, and commissions are my oil paintings on antique windows of flowers and birds, I have recently created and sold smaller pieces painted on glass panes. I have an unusual look and technique called "twin strokes". I have been paid to do demonstrations and I am offering workshops.
I currently show at these venues.
