Jeaneen Barnhart is dedicated to the art of drawing on paper, creating works with such diverse line and texture taking on their own dimension. Equine studies, Male Torsos, Sensual Nudes and Loving Couples encompass her extensive repertoire. Although painting is secondary, successful canvases depict similar qualities of classic drawing style and spirited movement. Her exploration with oil painting continues working with a variety of subject matter including her Full-Bodied Wine series, Tulips, Sunflowers, Equine and the Figure.
A Florida native, Jeaneen started painting at an early age along with her twin sister, Doreen. The twins had devoted parents educating them on all aspects of technical drawing skills. along with grandparents whom ranges from professional musicians, songwriters to comic book illustrator, it was a natural progression for the sisters to look to the arts.
After receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts painting degree from Alfred University in 1992, Jeaneen joined her sister in Louisville where they currently reside and continue to collaborate on many local and notable projects (Twinspired.com). Soon after the move, Barnhart's figure paintings created an impact on Louisville's nouveau art scene, which led to print and poster commissions for : Woodford Reserve Bourbon 2010 Kentucky Derby Bottle, 1994/1997/2009/2014 Kentucky Derby Festival, 1996 PGA Golf Experience and the 1999 St James Court Art Show. She has also published several successful poster prints and giclees of her original works.
