Jeanne Beck, born in Pittsburgh, PA, lives in Canandaigua, part of the beautiful Finger Lakes region of New York State. She creates mixed media paintings and large installations, exploring color, texture, line and shape as she translates ideas to visual expression.
Jeanne's works explore ways to communicate insights about human experience, creativity and interconnectedness.
We all live our stories, the ones we tell about ourselves to ourselves and the ones we tell about ourselves to others. Jeanne's works are a way of telling new stories about the power of creativity, using a visual language that is evolving with each new work.
Jeanne’s mixed media works have appeared in publications, curated invitational and juried exhibitions. They are in private and public collections, including University of Rochester Gleason Library and MacVittie Student Union, SUNY Geneseo, New York. Beck also exhibited and lectured at SOFA Chicago 2009 and won a Rosen Group Niche Award for one of her “Book of the Ancients” mixed media constructions in 2013.
In addition to art and writing, Beck’s interests include yoga, reading epic fantasy novels, writing, traveling and cooking. She loves spending time by water - whether creeks, rivers, lake or oceans – and is starting the first draft of a book about the power of leading a creatively engaged life.
