Read a bit about Jeanne, from her website:

Jeanne Rosier Smith grew up painting, but first discovered pastel when a box of Nupastels arrived in the mail from an uncle in Massachusetts, 20 years ago.  “You might enjoy these,” he said.  He had no idea.  She studied art at Georgetown University and later at the DuCret School of Art in New Jersey.  After earning a Ph.D. in English and teaching college English for ten years, she made the switch to full time professional art in 2000.  She now maintains a Pastel Studio school, teaches around the country, and is represented by several East Coast galleries.  Her subjects are diverse:  landscape, portrait, food, and the sea.  

Smith is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America, the American Society of Marine Artists, the Connecticut Pastel Society and the Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod, an IAPS Masters Circle member, and a juried artist member of the Copley Society, the Salmagundi Club, and Academic Artists of America.  She has exhibited at the Massachusetts State House, the Guild of Boston Artists, and nationally at the Pastel Society of America, the Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Arts Club and American Artist Professional League shows.  Her work has garnered top awards, including the Prix de Pastel (Best in Show) from IAPS, The International Association of Pastel Societies, a Grand Prize in International Artist Magazine Seascape Competition, and an Art Spirit Foundation Gold Medal Award for Excellence in Pastel at the American Artists Professional League.  She has placed in the Pastel Journal’s Pastel 100 for the past five years, including first place in 2017.  Her work has appeared in International Artist Magazine, American Art Collector, and The Pastel Journal, and she is a regular contributor to the Pastel Journal.  Her paintings are in collections on five continents. She is represented by Cecil Byrne Gallery of Charleston SC, Gallery 31 of Orleans MA, Francesca Anderson Fine Art of Lexington MA, Old Spouter Gallery on Nantucket, and Powers Gallery of Acton MA.
