Jeanne Hollington, has enjoyed living in the lush Saint Augustine environment since 2014. Reflecting and reinterpreting the amazing beauty that she finds here daily is her way of celebrating God's glory and her own tremendous joy.
"To have my work add something new to the ancient and venerable tapestry of this glorious city is a dream come true!"
Chosen by her professors in her first year at the University of Miami in Coral Gables Florida for a full tuition scholarship to pursue her BFA in graphics and illustration, Jeanne Hollington then began her career as a freelance artist. After half a lifetime exploring creativity in such diverse areas as glass etching, book illustration, animation, pottery, fiber art, and logo design, and the most challenging job of all - child rearing, she has discovered that her passion is best expressed in the fluid and infinitely supple medium of oil paint. The bold colors, and expressive (almost hyper-real) quality to her art stems from her deliberate pursuit of optimism and her wish to guide others to the see the grace and gifts in our midst.
