Born in Nassawaddox, Virginia, Jeanne is a true native of the Eastern Shore.  her grandmother was raised in the Kitty Knight House in Georgetown, Maryland and continued to reside in the town with her family.  As a child, Jeanne studied with Nance Hall Asher in her Denton studio and received no additional training until a college drawing class her last semester of college.  Upon returning to the Eastern Shore after college, Jeanne took advantage of classes such as those taught by prominent area artists at the Academy of the Arts in Easton, Maryland.  Called a "Renaissance Woman" by a friend, Jeanne likes to work in many media including watercolor, oils, pastel, pen-and-ink, colored pencil and acrylic.  Lately, she has expanded her photography efforts beyond resource material for her paintings and her children's sporting events.  Jeanne feels that the capturing of that "certain moment in time" is quite exciting. Jeanne lives in Ridgley, Maryland with her husband, Orrell, and paints in her Shady Grove Studio at their home.
