It's never too late

Hi, my name is Jeanne

I'm a soon to be 63 year young woman who believes that it is never too late to create. I am a strong believer in life long learning.

For me, making art is like going on a magical, mysterious adventure. When I travel through the creative process, I am able to access a part of myself that is sacred and soulful. I lose myself, and find myself, again and again. The joy truly is in the journey.
I make what makes my heart sing.  I am most interested in creating intuitively and painting outside of the lines. I like to use a variety of mediums and materials in my quest to make art that is meaningful, expressive and emotive.

I love nature, swans, crows, winter, dragonflies, lime green and photography. I play the ukulele and I have a deep affection for open, honest, meaningful conversation.

Learning and growing is a joyful process........always.
I regularly donate artwork to Isaac's Way Restaurant in Fredericton, New Brunswick. They support the community by raising funds to sponsor underprivileged children so they may take part in various ART programs. I have also exhibited at the former M&T Deli in Fredericton. I also organized a fundraiser at M&T, where I had  paintings for sale with 100% of the proceeds going to Liberty Lane Inc., a non-profit organization that offers Second Stage Housing to women and children who have experienced family violence.

I have shown my work in various local venues :
Imperial Theatre in Saint John N.B.
Charlotte Street Art Center, Fredericton N.B. 
The Palate Restaurant, Fredericton N.B.
Oromocto Therapeutic Clinic, Oromocto N.B.

A few years ago, three other artists and I joined together and created a group we call Artists Who Care. We were fortunate to receive funding from two New Horizons Grants. Although this has ended we continue to provide senior citizens in our area with experiences in the Arts. We volunteer our time and expertise directing, planning and teaching a variety of workshops/classes.

I've learned that I still have a lot to learn.
