About Jeanne Hamilton – Pastels

“I love learning and am always trying new techniques.” ~ Jeanne Hamilton

The beautiful, rural, countryside of Winlock Washington is the inspiration for most of my pastel work, although I  love to travel and often do a series inspired by images captured on these trips.

My husband and I have five dogs and they are also a favorite subject. My watercolor dog portraits convey the personality and character traits of each breed.

I graduated from San Diego State and became a teacher after attending St Martin’s College. I taught grades four on up through high school where I spent years teaching art and drama. I got an MA in teaching in 2000 from Grand Canyon University. Most of my art training has been obtained through workshops and evening classes.

I am one of the original members of the ARTrails of SWW organization which is thirteen years old now. I belong to the NW Pastel Society and the Olequa Artists Group. Now that I have retired from teaching at public school I teach art workshops and extension classes at the local community college.
