Jeanne Echternach

Artist Statement
Jeanne is a colorist at heart, and whether painting urban-scapes, harbor scenes or mountains, color always plays a prominent role. Strongly impressionist in style, her work is distinguished by bold and distinctive brushwork. Her painting journeys take her to many beautiful locations including Europe, New England, and the American Southwest. When not traveling, Jeanne spends her time painting in her home studio in Denver, and working outdoors every chance she gets. Jeanne also teaches plein air workshops throughout the year.

When not travelling, she spends her time painting in her home studio just outside of Denver, and working outdoors en plein air.
