Statement

    Jeanne Vadeboncoeur was born and raised in California’s Silicon Valley. She began her  formal schooling  studying traditional painting techniques at The Art Institute of Southern California, in Laguna Beach. However, being a NorCal girl at heart, she  returned home to finish her education at San Jose State University. She currently resides in the always pleasant Sunnyvale, CA. 

  Jeanne takes simple, every day objects and paints them in an overly dramatized fashion. With strong lighting and contrasting backgrounds, she hones in on her chosen subject  giving it the sense that it is more important than it rightfully should be. 

  She is often asked how she decides what to paint. Most of the objects she selects are small; usually they can fit in the palm of a hand. She finds that the spectrum of her focus takes on a different quality when she has to get in so close to the selected item. Even at a close range she is still able to see the object in its entirety, unlike with a larger specimen, where to see the detail one often looses sight of the overall image. Though completely self indulgent, she finds it quite  satisfying to allow herself to give all her attention to a single solitary item. 

Lastly, most simply, Jeanne paints things that she likes...she has a bit of a sweet tooth.
