About Us

Jeanne and her husband, James ( J R ), keep very busy with retail art shows, one-woman exhibits and active wholesale accounts—all nationwide. The reproduction of Jeanne’s original paintings on ceramic tiles and brushed aluminum has greatly expanded the market for her award-winning art.   

Her paintings have been included in numerous publications and books.  Her first children’s book illustration, “Crossing Bok Chitto”, won many national and international awards.

They open their studio/gallery and home twice a year—invite all their collectors—serve treats in their kitchen—and give many hugs! It’s a fun time for everyone who visits this rural home in Eastern Oklahoma.   

Jeanne is an enrolled member of The Echota Cherokee of Alabama.
