Jeannette Pomeroy Parssi is an artist and an art educator who lives and paints in Fishers. Her work is a celebration of light and color, and she draws her inspiration from the world around her. Originally from Ohio, she returned to the Midwest after twenty years in Florida and is happy to be home. Jeannette has studied with renowned artists Graham Nickson, dean of the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture; and Miraslov Antic, instructor at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
For me, painting is more than applying color to a canvas. It’s putting my view of the world out there for others to see, enjoy, judge, and hopefully appreciate. If there is one constant with my work, it is my use of color. I have loved to draw for as long as I can remember, and have always had an appreciation for vivid colors. Nature is a wonderful muse, and you will find in my work a love of the outdoors, no doubt cultivated by my mid-western upbringing. It’s not often that a person has an opportunity to follow their dreams, to dedicate their lives to something they truly love. I am fortunate to be in this position.
