Jeanne Mann, a professional violinist by trade, has always enjoyed painting and drawing but has recently returned more seriously to watercolour painting. Jeanne is mostly self taught with the old fashioned style 'A' level Art a good starting point and she enjoys working with the sometimes unpredictable nature of watercolours.
Her subjects are very diverse, usually having a story to tell or having a connection to an event or a place with inspiration often drawn from musical or historic sources.
Two solo exhibitions in Harlow resulted in successful commissions for pet portraits.
Jeanne's interest in local history led to her own 'pet' project in 2017 celebrating the 70th Anniversary of Harlow New Town. Seven watercolour paintings of the 'Family Group' by Henry Moore depicted in seven different venues in the town over the seven decades. These paintings were shown in the windows of the Civic Centre.
Jeanne is pleased to be a member of the Hertford Art Society because the variety of artists and their styles in the Society is so impressive.
