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

Sterling Silver Teaspoon

Sterling Silver Teaspoon
7x5 inches / oil on canvas
Always a joy to paint, this particular sterling teaspoon shows the autumn foliage outside my window as well as me leaning forward toward my easel to see the details while painting.  From the Seven Flowers pattern, this charming “Little Gem” is offered on ebay auction.

Casual Elegance - Capturing Nature's Transient Beauty - COMMISSIONS WELCOME

After dabbling in a vast array of subjects, I've finally decided to focus my new still life oil paintings predominantly on flowers which are my absolute favorite along with everything that can accompany them such as crystal, lace, glass jars, silverware, teapots and teacups contrasting with rustic, textural elements of painted wood, moss and nests. In other words, all my favorite things of beauty. As I state on my website homepage, "It's all about beauty in nature and antiques."

I was published in Visual Language Magazine


Blessed are those who see beautiful things in humble places where others see nothing.
