    Jeanne Lamosse holds a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Painting from the University of Hawaii. She lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area of Northern California. She has a studio at the Benicia Historical Arsenal Building. Her work is primarily abstract and focuses on color, deriving ideas from nature. She has worked at several artist colonies on residency fellowships. Last Spring she painted at the Hambidge Center for Arts in North Georgia. She also enjoys teaching drawing and painting and has specialized in adult education. Currently she teaches a painting class at College of Marin in Northern California. She has also led several day-long seminars in Yosemite National Park and a highlight in her teaching career was an invitation to teach in Monet’s Garden in Giverny, France. In addition to her love of traveling and long-distance walking, she loves her pets; Italian greyhound Allegro, and 3 red tabbies, Vincent V.G., Chagall IV, and Matisse.

What Artists have said about her painting:

     “The beginning decade of the 2000’s has obviously been a fruitful period for Jeanne Lamosse. Although the color was always strong it seems to have intensified this year which, along with greater focus on depth of feeling for the landscape references and a lessening of reliance on description, has given the work heightened impact. The work gives every indication of an artist evincing greater ease with her choice of   emphasis and a confidence in her power of presentation. Jeanne is definitely staking out an idiom to pursue without reservation and deserves every encouragement.”

    Lee Chesney, Artist and Professor of Art, Los Angeles, California

“Jeanne Lamosse’s paintings explore the nuances of color that stem from her felt experiences of specific encounters in physical space  and moment of time. Her original research into how great artists of the past have used color gives her painting and teaching insight and depth.”
