Jeanette Koumjian earned her BFA at Pratt Institute, where she also served as an Instructor. After an award-winning career in design and art direction, she turned to fine art, concentrating on oil painting and graphite drawing. Artist residency grants in Santa Fe and Taos, New Mexico, have enabled Jeanette to spend many months capturing the southwestâ€™s extraordinary terrain and light. Closer to her home and studio in New York, the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, historic Green-Wood Cemetery, gritty Red Hook and gracious Park Slope all provide inspiration to both Jeanette and her private students. Her work has been featured in one woman, juried group and invitational shows at The National Arts and Salmagundi Clubs, both in New York; and the Berkshire, Armenian Library and Norman Rockwell Museums, all in Massachusetts. Jeanette has been a member of the National Association of Women Artists, New York Artists Equity and currently serves as Secretary of the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club, one of the oldest organizations in America serving women artists. Her work is found in private and corporate collections nationwide.
