About Jeanette French
Creating portals of light, love, joy, beauty, compassion, hope and gratitude is my lifelong passion and purpose.
My mother painted when i was young and encouraged drawing and painting and handcrafting in all forms and my father, the photographer, gave me my first camera at age 8. As a result, i have been a lifelong student of both mediums. Formal training of my eye and technique has been with the wonderful Pacific NW painter teachers, Stan Capon and Edi Olson.
i hope you will enjoy these images as much as i enjoyed their creation.
