Creative background

Jeanne studied Fine Art from the early - mid 80s at Technikon Witwatersrand and at Michaelis School of Art at the University of Cape Town. After setting forth into a career in advertising, the film industry, a two year stint as an art teacher and finally a journalist and publisher, she returned full time to her canvasses in 2001.

Jeanne works from her studio at her Cape Town home.


Inspired by

In her recent work Jeanne is exploring the decorative elements of various familiar traditions and cultures, and translated them onto the canvas. "In this new context I explore decorative images as the decorative but also as the narrative where the formal communicates with the expressive, the figurative with the abstract and various mediums with one another as the various cultures meet and communicate in a visual language."
