Painting of Jeannine
by George William Clark

Jeannine Jourdan

I am a California native who painted solely in egg tempera for some years before moving to Italy where I trained in drawing and oil painting with Charles Cecil in Florence for three years.

I am humbled to be associated with a lineage of the old masters in art which seeks to bring truth and beauty into form. Now residing on Dartmoor in England I seek to align my work with those traditions.

Lineage

The following is a list of those I consider to be my teachers still. Mixing my own paints where possible, stretching canvas onto cradles and mixing my own medium all contribute to my experience of connecting with this lineage. Visiting their work at every opportunity is also an important way I work to continue learning from them.
