Jeannette Martin was born in Brooklyn, N.Y, She left New York to study art at Bennington College in Vermont and later received a BA in Studio Art from City College in Staten Island. She then continued her studies as a full time student at the Art Student’s League for another three years, majoring in lithography and painting. While there, she was lucky enough to catch the last lectures on Drawing and Anatomy given by the great curator/teacher Robert Beverly Hale.

Martin paints landscapes, still lives and portraits in oil and watercolor. Her paintings have been influenced by an array of artists, including Titian, Hopper, Veronese and Blake. Her realist perspective evolved from years of exploration of various techniques of expression until she arrived at the one most suited to her artistic purpose.

She currently lives in Central Massachusetts and spends her summers on the coast of Maine. Her paintings, drawings and prints have been shown and sold at galleries in New England and are in many private collections across the U.S.
