Jeannie House is a long time artist in various mediums and a member of Mountain Shadows Artist Association where she has won a number of awards over the years.  She is an active participant and studio host in the ARTrails show each March.

Jeannie states:  “I am mostly self-taught and have been painting most of my life.  Art was always with me when we moved; I got to see a lot of beautiful country.  Times were hard then just after World War II.  I always had a pencil and paper.  I learned to draw by sketching my family, friends, animals, flowers, etc.  My first award came when I was in 3rd grade.  At school, I got to paint posters and play props.

I have worked with an interior designer that had me painting on just about anything:  stucco, plaster walls, furniture, etc.  I love to paint landscapes, portraits and still lifes but my first love is drawing and pastels are a close second.  My work has been shown in several museums, galleries and art shows.  I have taught art on and off for the last 20 years.  I love teaching because of how much joy it gives me and others.  I work in most mediums.”
