Artist Bio and Statement
A proud native of the great state of Kentucky, Jeanne began work as an independent interior decorator in 1999 after a career in technical theater. She majored in studio art at Transylvania University in Lexington, Kentucky, studying painting, sculpture, large-scale textile construction, and other media that inform her work.
Jeanne brings her love of color, form, and storytelling to her custom designs. Her trademark is reinventing traditional techniques by juxtaposing playfulness and high drama with cutting edge craftsmanship and innovation. Passionate about designing bold and beautiful interior statements with a YOU-nique factor, Jeanne’s creations can always be counted on as conversation starters.
Jeanne’s upholstery collaborations and installation art have appeared in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Oakland Museum of California, the Berkeley Art Museum/PFA, and are included in the San Jose Museum of Art’s permanent collection. Examples of her installation work include giant fabric structures at the Burning Man arts festival and temporary architectural “slipcovers” for large public buildings. Jeanne is active in several national associations for design professionals. She teaches upholstery and other fabrication techniques, and speaks professionally on design topics.
