Jeanette Jobson is a visual artist who lives and works in Flatrock,
Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. She was born in Nova Scotia, grew up
in Newfoundland, and lived in Ireland and the United Kingdom for
fourteen years, before returning to the province in 1988. She studied
fine art under Tom Greenshields, R.A., in the UK in the 1980's, with an
emphasis on classical drawing techniques. She has continued to expand
her abilities in painting and printmaking from workshops and self study.
For thirty years, she has explored the world through a variety of
mediums, with her work evolving over time into its current mix of
representational and impressionist techniques with a concentration on
reflections, water and fish.
Jeanette has devoted time at the
board and mentor levels to the local arts community, as well as online
visual art forums as instructor and moderator. She also offers
workshops in drawing and painting as well as gyotaku printing.
Her work is in the collection of the Government of Newfoundland and
Labrador and has been exhibited in The Rooms as part of the Arts &
Letters Competition, as well as being in private collections in Canada,
USA, England and New Zealand.
Her work is represented by Spurrell Gallery, House of Diamonds Art Gallery and Five Island Art Gallery. copyright (c) Jeanette Jobson 2013
