“A PAINTERLY APPROACH TO LANDSCAPE”
Tuesday, Feb. 22 7 PM Gallery & Art Center, 215 E. State St., downtown, Redlands
Public welcome – no charge
Jeannine will demonstrate/lecture on a painterly approach to landscape from start to finish, and the use of the palette knife. Says Jeannine, “I am a studio artist and plein air painter that loves to explore the outdoors as a way to connect with reality and express myself. Nature provides me with endless compositions to paint and countless color combinations to interpret. My passion is transforming the local terrain and habitat into expressive works of color, light and texture. I believe my expressive approach to painting and bold brushwork strives to bring new life and a fresh look to southern California landscape art.”
I have been a painter and art educator for the past two decades teaching drawing and painting to children, adolescents and adults. I received formal art training at Otis Art Institute, Parsons School of Design and CSULA where I received a Bachelor’s degree in Studio Art for Drawing & Painting and went on to earn a Master’s degree and Certification to teach Art. In ‘95 I began teaching at the Visual Arts and Design Academy in Pasadena as the Studio Art Instructor and as an Art Teacher for the South Pasadena High School Summer Arts Program. In 2003 I began working at Mount St. Mary’s University in Los Angeles as a member of the Adjunct Faculty through 2015. Over the past 20 years I have also worked as a Restoration Artist in Pasadena assisting with the restoration of fine art for private art collectors, art dealers, artists estates, and museums. Currently I enjoy teaching in my studio as well as being part of the Art Faculty at the Creative Arts Group in Sierra Madre.
