A Creative Mind
Born in Los Angeles, California, Jeanette Crooks is an artist residing in the Pacific Northwest for over 30 years. She found her interest in art as a youth during the early 1980's. It was here that she established her foundation for art & painting. After graduating high school, she went right into the work force, only dabbling in painting over the next 25 years. With life's twists and turns, keeping her focus on her family, she still managed to stay creative. She started her own business in 2009, selling antiques and repurposing furniture, which helped spark her back into painting on canvas in 2015. She submerged herself into painting once again and has been painting passionately and professionally ever since! She rediscovered her love for watercolor by expanding her art education through local & online workshops & classes in watercolor, gouache, & mixed media in 2018, 2019, & 2020. She believes that each new painting she creates is an opportunity to learn something different and to expand her skills.
The desire to keep reinventing her craft keeps her work fresh and unique. Jeanette's art has evolved to include 3D assemblage sculptures, watercolor, gouache, and more recently she is exploring mono printing, block printing & linocuts. Her favorite subjects include animals, florals, landscapes and seascapes and she is influenced by the natural elements of the great outdoors. Jeanette also enjoys painting in plein air while traveling or on hiking trips to places she visits in the Pacific Northwest.

Jeanette creates 3D assemblage sculptures from recycled materials, found objects, and antique doll heads. She has delighted collectors of her work for more than 7 years. Her work is sold locally in Everett, Washington at Grand Leader Mercantile.
