Jeanne and her husband, James ( J R ), keep very busy with retail art shows, one-woman exhibits and active wholesale accounts—all nationwide. The reproduction of Jeanne’s original paintings on ceramic tiles and brushed aluminum has greatly expanded the market for her award-winning art.    Her paintings have been included in numerous publications and books.  Her first children’s book illustration, “Crossing Bok Chitto”, won many national and international awards. They open their studio/gallery and home twice a year—invite all their collectors—serve treats in their kitchen—and give many hugs!  It’s a fun time for everyone who visits this rural home in Eastern Oklahoma
ARTWORK TO LIVE WITH. Jeanne’s Art has brought her numerous awards in Native American Art shows, many one-woman exhibits and inclusion of her work in many publications and reference books; especially her painting series portraying the shared history of African Americans and Native Americans . . . . called the Sister Series. She has illustrated a Children's Book, titled "Crossing Bok Chitto", which has won national acclaim. Her painting style captures the strength of women and human relationships with simplicity.
