Self-taught emerging artist, Jeannine Flower returned to her paintbrushes and palette in May 2017 following a 30-year global professional career in finance. Born in Philadelphia PA (USA) in 1966, she met her British husband in Kuwait (1993) and today lives with her family in Paris.

From a young age, art and music was the center of Jeannine’s world. She studied classical piano and violin, and at the same time had a love for horses /drawing horses. At the age of 9 she attended weekly workshops at Moore College of Art and Design of Philadelphia. During her teenage years she created acrylic and oil paintings for friends and family and won awards at various local art shows.
Following her retirement from a senior finance role, Jeannine rekindled her two passions, devoting time to her art and her horses which she rides together with her teenage daughter in showjumping.
Jeannine does not define her artistic form as a particular style rather it is the “subject to paint” that defines what colors, format and painting techniques she would like to use. She regards this as her own artistic signature. She is deeply influenced by her environment and music is always with her as part of the artistic creation. Working in oils, Jeannine uses color, light and the movement of the paintbrush to bring a blank canvas to vibrant life. Each painting is an evolution in itself fusing color and format to best represent the emotion, beauty and appeal of the subject on canvas.
Since her return to painting in May 2017, Jeannine has built a small collection, completed various commissions, and participated in exhibitions in and around Barbizon/Fontainebleau and Paris. Recently, Jeannine’s painting “Blue Coat” has been selected for the 230th annual Salon de la Société des Artistes Français at Art Capital 2020 (12-16 February 2020, Grand Palais, Paris).
