A native of Arkansas, Jeannie has enjoyed art since early childhood where she would work alongside her father as he painted portraits of family and friends. She has won several awards and competitions throughout her early years that enabled her to win a scholarship to Arkansas State University. It was there that she earned a double art major. Throughout the years she has traveled the world gaining inspiration in the faces and places that have touched her soul; the emotional pull of creativity always pushing her in new and creative ways. “Art is all around us and I am in constant awe of Nature's great masterpiece.” “I love art that inspires and sparks the creative imagination in both the artist and viewer. Art that leaves you empowered and forever changed." Jeannie has donated her art over the past 9 years to many different foundations. The Art Auction of North East Arkansas is especially close to her heart which raises money and awareness for childhood hunger.
