Private Critiques & Mentoring

What would you like to work on in your art? Would you like to build confidence in your design choices and paint more expressively? Perhaps you'd like to expand your color palette, or explore working with new materials, techniques and ways to combine them.


Private sessions can help your understanding of your own artistic process grow. We each bring a unique set of experiences and perspectives to art-making. My focus on exploration and self-awareness will help you nurture your strengths, develop a deeper understanding of who you are as an artist and express yourself more confidently in your work.

$35 per one hour class; please contact Jeanne at 585-704-6419 with questions or to set up a class time. Supply list will be provided.

I dwell in possibility.” —Emily Dickinson

If you would like feedback on works in progress and help moving your paintings to the next level, I also offer private critiques and mentoring sessions online and at my studio.


Send an email to me with some questions and several images you'd like to discuss before your session. We'll discuss what's working in your paintings, what isn't and come up with ideas and possible resources to help you move work forward. 


Creating is a process of choice-making, taking action and refining and each person's process is unique. Get to know yours; it will help you build on your strengths and make more informed choices about your work and directions.

An introductory, free 20 minute session is available to discuss how we might work together in ways that will benefit your process.

Please email me at to set up your introductory session.

Cost: $60 per hour, can be divided into two 1/2 hour sessions.

Design Your Own Creative Retreat

My studio/gallery has 1350 square feet of space and I will be your host during your retreat. I have my own studio space at one end and will be on site working when you are. You can work by yourself or with a close friend, partner or family member. Imagine writing, painting or crafting as part of your visit to the beautiful Finger Lakes region.

Whether you already live in the area or are visiting, having a space to create can be a great incentive. The location offers easy access to nearby: lodging, shops, restaurants, breweries, lakefront and a friendly coffee shop downstairs. The space is comfortable, modernized, well-lit, with natural light and wireless internet. You'll have your own work table and chair, so you can spread out, relax and really get work done. The studio is safe, so you can leave works in progress right there at the end of each day.

Half or full-day creative retreat space is available for individuals or groups up to four. Call or text me to discuss what your specific needs and interests are at 585-704-6419.

Cost:  $40 per person for a half-day (4 hours)

          $75 per person for a full day  (8 hours)
