Jeanie Brandt - Acrylic, Mixed Media
Jeanie Brandt is an acrylic and mixed media painter. She was born in Atlanta, Georgia. After multiple moves throughout the country with her Air Force husband, they moved from Arlington Virginia to Maui in 2016.
Jeanie has been an artist for over 14 years. Her paintings of abundant flowers, ethereal scenes, abstract as well as doodle designs are all expressed through bright, beautiful colors. The artist has stated, “I am a feeling person. The moment I pick up a brush, my feelings about the world flow through my mind and are transferred onto my canvas. It’s a process, the feeling of a moment, a color preparation, a pattern filling the canvas, creating the first layer from that momentary feeling. And then, a second layer emerges, and on and on until the canvas speaks to me and says….I feel that moment too.”
Jeanie pursued a career in interior design after receiving her B.A in Interior Design from the University of Georgia. She has always been an artistic person and it was natural for her to become a painter. She recently completed the Art2Life Creative Visionary Program.
While residing in Arlington, Virginia she was a member of the Arlington Artist Alliance, where her artwork was displayed throughout multiple public venues. She was the recipient of the 3rd place award in the Arlington Artist Alliance juried art show, “Hidden in Plain Site”, with her painting, "Take A Hike”.
Jeanie is currently a member of the Lahaina Arts Society where her acrylic and mixed media art is being exhibited. You can also see her artwork periodically at the Lahaina Arts Society Art Fair at Cannery Mall on the weekends in Lahaina.
