Jeanette, is married and has a son and daughter, Jeanette was Vice President of the Kununurra Arts Council created and Managed two Kununurra Art Galleries, Resident Artist at the Kununurra District High School, teaching at Kimberley College of TAFE and private tuition

Her paintings are included in many private collections, sponsored acquisitions purchases, overseas and Government collections (Premiers & Minister of Health Offices) and has exhibited in London, Paris and New York.

Her love of the Western Australian landscape is apparent throughout her work. Capturing the unique colours and textures, Flora and Fauna of the Northwest, using a variety of techniques in gold, pearl dust, acrylics and Kimberley ochres on canvas.

This has made her aware of all the influences that have formed her own identity, specifically that of the Kimberley, Pilbara and the Northern Territory (Kakadu) enabling her to present exciting new exhibitions.

After spending 6 years in the Avon Valley wheat belt & due to her husbands appointment as Senior Inspector, WAQIS on the NT / WA border & subsequent transfer back to Kununurra, she returned in 2006 to the Bedfordale Hills area. Having lived and breathed the Kimberley for a decade it still remains a constant inspiration for her painting and ensures return annual trips for exhibitions to retain the connection.
