Jeanine's figurative painting style evokes anticipation, humour, hope and it often depicts a narrative, which speaks of foreign lands and uncharted spaces.

"People are funny creatures. They are forever on the lookout for something better. I am not immune to this, but living in paradise and on the edge of the world it makes it a bit difficult to look over the fence to see if the grass is greener on the other side. So instead of looking over the fence I made it my business to look beyond."

I try to take the viewer on a journey, to a place - my place. Somewhere, where no one has been before but one that still feels welcome and strangely familiar. A place where you could imagine spending some time, with me, with the rest of the world, being in the moment, at exactly this moment.
