Jeanne studied art at the University of Maryland and printmaking at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria VA, however it was many years later that she fell in love with mixed media, combining many art forms with collage. Jeanne has always been an artist, first working in paints, pastel and printmaking. Now she combines many mediums with her collages to achieve textural balance.
Each collages has a sense of mystery. Each layer provides an element of surprise and textural elements. Many of the pieces combine layers of acrylic paints and inks, torn tissue paper, decorative papers, her photographs and drawings, and recycled items such as old maps. Laying paper as if it were paint, new transparencies of designs and color are discovered. All papers are torn to give organic shape.
