I am a Multi-Media Artist. I have been inspired through artwork by many old world artists, like Monet, Picasso, Van Gogh, Renuar and many others. I have always been a Kansas native, born in 1954 in McPherson, Kansas to a family of eight, which eventually grew to a family of sixteen. I am currently living in Wichita, Kansas. Coming from a family with assorted creative talents, I felt a genuine connection with the arts since the age of 15.
My educational experience with multi-media art spanned over a period of 42 years. That experience includes work with acrylics, watercolor, charcoal, pencil, pastels, calligraphy, embellishments, stained glass, acid etching, decoupage, garden stones, pots, mosaics, collages & photography. I was also the previous owner of 'Jeanne's Creations' Floral Design and Gifts. My current endeavor is experimental acrylic painting with multi-media and collage.
My daughter, Stephanie Ward, and I have joined with acquiring an art studio and gallery space at Artist's Central Wichita at 5044 E. Central. My family is very important to me, so I wanted to include my children's artistic abilities and awards. Stephanie has displayed her art at the Smithsonian and the Kennedy Hall of States in Washington, D.C. My son, Sean, is also an artist with experience in oils, acrylics, pastels, charcoals, pencils, sculpture, ceramics, photography and graphic design. He currently owns Ward Photography. My birth family's talents include a grandmother that was a pianist/organist, Father who was a culinary artist and cake designer, mother who enjoyed working with acrylics and siblings whos talents varied between music, clothing design, quilting, doll making, interior design, faux painting/designer house painting, architecture and theater.
I have been in art classes throughout high school and classs at Wichita Center of the Arts, City Arts of Wichita, Friends University, WSU Fine Arts Center, Rayers Beardens Stained Glass and I continue learning through classes at Artist Central Wichita.
Some of my other interests have included programs working with the Arc of Sedgwick County and Maize High School - Special Needs Education. My husband, Randal, and I are avid fans of the Wichita State University Shockers and the city of Wichita, Kansas. Thanks for taking the time to look at my portfolio!
