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.
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 national 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, writing, traveling and cooking. She loves spending time by water - whether creeks, rivers, lake or oceans – and has new interests in photo-collage and poetry.
