The Yukon has provided Jeanine with inspiration since the late 1980s. While building a life in the north, she developed an art practice as a means of earning a winter living. With glass tools tucked away in her background, she began doing traditional stained glass panels for art fairs and commissions. After receiving the generous support of Arts and Cultural funding from the Yukon government, she took several courses and developed a fused glass practice that evolves to this day.
She currently lives in her studio, in Whitehorse, working and teaching on the Mt. Sima Road. In winter, you might find her at a tiny studio in Sechelt, BC, where it’s a bit warmer sometimes, and has a lot of ocean notions to contemplate.
