Jeanne Fellow | Paper
Jeanne Fellow has been experimenting with various two and three dimensional art forms for over 30 years. Initially she focused on traditional drawing and painting processes. Due to her experimental nature, she quickly moved into creating innovative techniques in her art forms. She has chosen for the past 11 years to work primarily with acrylic inks because of the rich, luminous color palette and other unique qualities not available with traditional watercolor or acrylic paints.
In 2011, Jeanne developed a technique of lighting her painted paper sconces with CFL bulbs and created what she calls - “LumenArt”. In 2012, she developed other innovative techniques to sculpt the painted paper into “wall sculptures” in a variety of different forms and is currently working on ways to also light the wall sculptures. In addition to creating her artwork, Jeanne teaches classes for adults at the Blue Raven Art School in Tucson, AZ. The classes are based on some of the various innovative techniques she has developed using the acrylic inks. They are designed to encourage the students to get in touch with their own “inner artist” in a supportive atmosphere which allows their creativity to flourish.
Jeanne participated in the Pima Arts Council Open Studios in November 2012 and was voted one of the top four favorite artists out of the 250 participants by the visitors to the studios.
Jeanne’s personal art philosophy: “Art continues to be transformational for me! I’ve not only learned to color outside the lines, I continue to learn how to live outside the proverbial BOX.”
