Jeanette Adams lives on 100 acres of Mountain Ash Forest, her interest lies in evoking your imagination to guide you to the place where she lives. Currently painting this environment using oil on canvas with flamboyant color - applying different texture using palette knife and mediums - being inspired by her pristine environment - following the movement of paint to create something interesting even subjective. Her genre sometimes blurs the line between realism and imagination believing in mark making to express and respond in a personal way to what she sees.
As a young mother Jeanette started exhibiting in hers and other businesses being one of the largest purpose built Shell Self Service Station in Victoria enabled Jeanette to receive commissions hold exhibitions there and sell through other hospitality and service businesses– she had many commissions and her work is in private collections here and overseas.
Jeanette then moved to the Dandenong Ranges building Gembrook Cottages - purpose built luxury cottages for couples with small shop she also exhibited there - When entering an art show in 2013 and being awarded Gold Prize Contemporary Jeanette met artists wanting to lift the profile for Contemporary Art in the South Easter suburbs - she became an inaugural committee member of SECAN (South Eastern Contemporary Art Network Inc).
