Born in Los Angeles, Jeannine Emmett began her love affair with painting at a very early age. Her father, John Reinwald – an architect and talented artist, recognized an artistic aptitude in his daughter and fostered it by providing enrichment activities both at home and outside and did so until his death in 1989. She went on to study fine art and architecture at Santa Monica College with aspirations to become a Landscape Architect.
Subsequently, she took numerous art courses at Otis College of Art and Design. In 2011 Jeannine decided to take a break from her landscape design career in order to bring some needed balance. In need of a creative outlet during this “break”, she decided to pick up her brushes again. Little did she know that she’d find her bliss.
With the support and encouragement from family, friends, and that knowing that Divine guidance is present in this, she decided to pursue her passion for painting as a full time career. Now as an emerging artist in Los Angeles, Jeannine is becoming more widely known for her unique voice and contemporary take on traditional landscape and figurative painting. Her technique is a process of action and reaction, resulting in many layers of paint and achieving an overall sense of color harmony. She is a consummate colorist, mixing many of her paints directly on the canvas.
Jeannine’s big sky landscapes evoke calm, contemplation, and a sense of awe at the wonder of nature’s inherent contrasts.
Jeannine’s work hangs in private collections across the United States, Mexico, UK and Dubai.Visit Artist's Page
