Member Spotlight: Jeanie Hendricks

Jeanie has joined the board as Treasurer, replacing Nancy McCarra, who served in that position for many years.

Jeanie's career began in advertising and graphic design, she then began studying painting and portraiture, and now works as a professional artist and high school visual arts teacher.

She studied painting and portraiture with Cedric and Joanette Egeli, Stephen Perkins, John Ebersberger and Natalie Italiano at Studio Incamminati. The study of light and color is what most interests and challenges her. "I’m intrigued by the way the light can affect the  mood of a  painting. I enjoy the challenge of  trying to capture  the quality of light, how it affects the color of skin or falls across an object, or the way it describes the time of day in a landscape "  Her works are done primarily in pastel and oil. She has  pieces in collections all over the United States and abroad. She has shown her work in private and juried exhibits.

Hendryx is a juried member of Portrait Painters of America, Pastel Society of America, Pastel Society of Maryland, and Maryland Society of Portrait Painters.
