Dr. Jeanne Ames – Watercolors & Gourd Art

Jeanne is an artist from San Diego, CA.  Her interest in art began twenty years ago when her mother-in-law became a docent at the LA County

Museum of Art.  She has used many different mediums including Gourds, Pine Needle Basketry, Collage, Acrylics, and Watercolors.

She has donated pieces of her work to the Los Angeles Zoo Animal Behavioral Enrichment Program, the San Diego Museum of Art, and other non-profit organizations.  She was a featured artist on the Carol Duvall Show on HGTV.  She has Juried into the Doggone Art Show, The Catnip Connection, The Small Image Art Show in Gallery 21 in Balboa Park, Talmadge Art Show in San Diego, and Le Cirque de l’Art in La Jolla.  Her art has been on the cover of Expression Art Magazine and featured in several books.


It wasn’t until recently that Jeanne discovered watercolor.  Watercolor has now become her favorite medium to work in and animals are her favorite subjects.

Her art will be on display in the Adobe’s Art Gallery through the end of June.
