Raised in the rural outskirts of Oregon City, Jeannie spent much of her free time roaming the countryside, admiring and sketching animals and landscapes. At the age of 10, she received an Etch A Sketch®, and immediately began delighting friends and family with her complex and realistic “EtchArt” continuous line drawings (created by turning the knobs, and then preserved by removing the aluminum ‘sand’).
I am a self-taught artist except for a few art classes I recently took at Clackamas Community College. I graduated June of 2012 and received my Certification in Graphic Art and Web Design. I started drawing and painting at a very young age and was inspired and encouraged by my mother to draw and paint every day.
