Member Biography

Jeannie Grisham Photo


"The joy in painting for me lies in the process of creating. As soon as I dip my brush in water, load it with the pigment and introduce it to paper, I’m in a different world. The painting starts with transparent watercolor and continues developing darks while managing to keep the lights. During this process I usually end up adding gouache to the work. It is great fun to manipulate and adjust the textures until the results are pleasing. The painting is considered finished only when it feels just right. Any media, as long as it is water soluble, is fair game, and any tool I can think of to help create textures on hot press paper is a welcome find."
