Jeanne is primarily a Modernist painter depending on the subject matter and what she wishes to create. “Art at its essence makes you think and feel.

Her work has been exhibited at the Arvada Center, Albuquerque Museum, Bountiful Art Center, Kimball Art Center, Springville Museum of Art, Eccles Community Art Center, St. George Museum of Art, and Woodbury Art Museum.
