“My goal in my current work is to go beyond the realism and explore the energy, life, and vitality of the nature of my subject and theme. I hope you will enjoy these works and be drawn into that kinetic energy and feel it in your own soul. I hope it will make you smile, wonder, tilt your head, ponder and engage as you join into the energy of each art work.”
JEANNE is also an author using her name Tiefenbach - Henderson. Here's an interview about her book 'Madonna of the Ways"
My inspiration is my life, my imagination, and my journey. From the time I was in High School, even before, I would love to draw people. I explored so many art techniques that I fell in love with enamels. Once I started my Art teaching career, my students became my focus. I started an Art Organization called the Western Reserve Artist Association and ran that in a local community for 15 years. So my inspiration is also to promote other artists on their journeys and have events and display their works in my Gallery in Twinsburg, Ohio. and on line.
Being trained as a certified Art Educator, I explored many techniques and processes. From metal smithing, enameling, weaving and fiber sculpture, to drawing, color pencil, pastels and painting. I love them all; watercolor, acrylic and my favorite is Oil. I have also studied various beading techniques for jewelry making. I like to explore process techniques like Japanese Gyotaku fish painting and the various possibilities with Pouring art. I am currently pursuing a degree in Art Therapy, as I work on developing a program using Art for Healing in workshops and private explorations.
