Artist - Jeanie Tomanek

Artist Jeanie Tomanek draws upon themes that first developed in her poetry; exploring various feminine archetypes from myths, folk-tales, fairy tales and her own experiences. The natural world as she experienced it growing up on a farm in the Genessee Valley region of New York also strongly influences her work. Trees, flowers, birds and snow are symbols for emotional states or story elements. Dogs sometimes accompany the pale bald “Everywoman” protagonist on her journeys that often take place beneath a starry moonlit sky. She has been called a mythic artist, telling ancient stories that never grow old.

Tomanek is self-taught and has always painted for pleasure. It is only in the last decade that she has begun her full-time artist career. She lives in Marietta, Georgia with her husband Dennis and two rescue dogs.
Love and light,
