Jeanne Waters

BIO

Jeanne Waters studied art at Immaculate Heart College in Los Angeles where folk art was the basis of the curriculum. 

She traveled to Mexico on a trip with her painting class, and soon made Mexico her home. She lived and worked there for over twenty years, first in Mexico City and then in  Xalapa, Veracruz, showing her work in galleries, national juried shows, and two major museums. 

Waters has also shown her paintings, ceramics and textiles in Cuba, Korea, and the U.S.  She has illustrated four children's books, two of which she wrote. She created backdrops for the band Roble de Agua led by her daughter Sara Robledo.

 

She returned to the U.S. in 1992 and established Jeanne Waters Art at J&J Studios with her husband Jim Halvorson, a glass artist. Waters paints with a spray gun and uses hand made templates to create  images that are mysterious, beautiful, and vivid.
