soul and purpose

"Through my paintings I hope to communicate a personal enthusiasm and respect for the natural world, thus encourage in others an active stewardship of same." -- JEANNE ILLENYE

Jeannei all your paintings are love your traditional look in still life paintings.


Thank you SO much, Anudeepa! How refreshing to hear compliments about the traditional appearance of my work, particularly as I've tried for several years to get away from that and move into a more contemporary style of realism. However, to some extent it's like asking a Tiger to chance his stripes! I'm a traditional gal at heart...and my work will likely always reflect that. Thank you for your lovely comments! Jeanne
