She attained her Diploma of Art Studies at Forrestfield Technical college, receiving awards in the final year of painting and studio ceramics.
Jeanette has also taken several workshops and courses, TAFE, grant sponsored residency and school workshops.

Jeanette is a multi-award winning artist, with both Oil and Watercolour paintings, and her artwork is included in many private and Government collections.
Her love of the Western Australian landscape is apparent through her work; capturing the unique colours and textures, using a variety of techniques in acrylic, Kimberley ochre, pearl dust and gold dust. This has made her aware of all the influences that have formed her own identity, specifically that of the Kimberley, Pilbara and the Northern Territory, Kakadu.
