Jeanne Maguire Thieme

Born in Oak Park, Illinois my family migrated to Stamford, Connecticut where I spent my childhood. My home away from home became Southern Ct. State University where I received my Bachelor of Science in Art Education. Upon graduation my art career began in illustration and design in a Connecticut art studio. Always yearning for a more rural, quiet life I soon found myself in New Hampshire where I freelanced with local art studios and eventually began teaching Art at the local high school. After rewarding years of teaching I left to pursue the professional career of an artist in my studio/gallery on Pipe Dream Farm in Swanzey, New Hampshire. My energy ever since has been devoted to my passion of painting and discovering the endless surprises of mixing water with paint. TRUST THE WATER In my watermedia paintings I trust the water.I let it go, let it mix with paint and flow around dry areas on the paper. This creates abstract patterns which I use in my compositions.
