Each work of art holds a wee bit of magic and a blueprint of my soul. Inspired by the mysteries of nature, unseen miracles and a touch of the absurd, I am grateful for the perpetual need to create art and the urge to dance to the beat of an imaginary drummer.

"Art and Story" art exhibit at the Shirlington Library

Three of Jeanie's Spirit Beings are currently showing at the "Art and Story" exhibit at the Shirlington Library in Arlington, VA. The theme of this exhibit is the power of art and story. "A good story or other form of literature can spark the imagination and inspire artists to create meaningful work. Behind every piece of art is a story–whether borne of the artists’ experiences or their interpretation of social or cultural events. The works in this show demonstrate a wide assortment of media types and draw from a variety of subject matter, while each piece depicts a story in some way." Jeanie has three Spirit Beings in this show: Dances With Love, Tree Guardian of Avalon, and La Befana Strega. Pieces are on show October through November, 2014.

The Pig's Eye Art Chair Benefit Project

Once upon a time, not so very long ago, a local restaurant/gallery asked Salem, Massachusetts artists to turn old chairs into works of art, to be auctioned away to raise money for the Julia Gauthier Scholarship Fund. This scholarship fund was created after the tragic death of Julie Gauthier in an auto accident caused by a drunk driver. Each chair-based artwork was to have a theme of pigs. Jeanie Marie happily took one of these chairs to her studio and began work on it. This beautiful chair, a tribute to the Chinese Year of the Pig, was her contribution to the project.

Art Returns From the Dead: A Day of the Dead Collection

Imagine a holiday when the dead return to their homes and visit their families! The Day of the Dead is a joyous Mexican tradition celebrated on November 1st and 2nd, a time to remember and spiritually reconnect with departed loved ones. Originating in ancient Mexico, this custom is celebrated in many North, Central and South American countries. Inspired by Mexican, Mayan and Aztec imagery, these pieces celebrate the Dias de los Muertos. Masks like El Mago Del Mar (shown), combine sea glass and pottery from the shores of Salem, Massachusetts with skulls, bones and other playful Day of the Dead inspirations. Others, like Waiting for the Sun and Ix Chel draw on darker images and themes. These are two of the pieces that were on exhibit and the photographs really don't adequately capture their light, color or presence.
