Jeanne Beck
Jeanne Raffer Beck (American, 1949-) was born in Pittsburgh, PA to a working class family with great appreciation for the arts. She moved to New York State in sixth grade and has lived here ever since. Jeanne earned her BA in Communications at Empire State College, State University of New York in 1986 and her MFA in Creative Writing at Goddard College, Vermont in 1990.

Prior to becoming a visual artist, she worked as a professional writer, which may help explain why stories, book art references and gestural marks sometimes appear in her work. She has written everything from radio commercials to free lance magazine articles and corporate newsletters, having owned a publications consulting company for eight years, and before that, spent eleven-years in public relations.

Jeanne recently moved from a city studio in Rochester, NY to a larger loft space in the historic downtown business district in Canandaigua, NY to allow focus on larger scale paintings and mixed media installations. These works have been shown in national and international exhibitions and publications, and have been purchased by public institutions as well as private collectors.

Married for over 25 years, Jeanne and husband Bob have a blended family and make their home in Canandaigua on fourteen acres in the Finger Lakes region of New York.


Artist Statement:

“Over 20 years and thousands of studio hours ago I decided to stop yearning for an art-centered life and start living it. As my artworks evolve, my techniques, tools and subjects also do, but my commitment to growth and experimentation is a constant.”
