Hi I’m Jeannette. After graduating with an Art degree but working in finance, I’m finally getting back into making things. I like working with many different kinds of media.
Hi I’m Jeannette. I live in the Canadian Pacific Northwest with a husband, two sons and a male dog. Art has been with me all my life, I’ve studied art history and studio art. After being told that you can’t make a living with art all my life, I’ve worked in the financial field. But I can’t help myself, I have to have art in my life.
The problem is, I like so many different media and disciplines. I have a broad appreciation for all creative things. Here is a list of art media and disciplines that I have experience with:
silversmithing, jewelry making, glass fusing, painting (acrylic, oils, watercolours, inks, encaustic), printmaking (silkscreen) rubber stamp carving, perfumery, aromatherapy, pottery, sculpture (clay, polymer clay, epoxy clay, plaster, soft sculpture), needle felting, crocheting, doll customizing, drawing (graphite, ink, colored pencil, pastels), fashion illustration and I’m sure I’m forgetting some…the only common theme is their small scale.
I’m hoping that this blog will serve as a repository for my works and experiments that I can share with others. I’m also hoping to keep the spirit of my works to be fun. Right now, I am into making small stuffed figures ’cause small and cute gives me the warm and fuzzies 🙂
