Biographical Information

Jeanine Abels, Art Through Paper

Although her college degree was in music, Jeanine Abels' interest in Asian philosophy and Traditional Chinese Medicine led her to her current passion. Now she works in collage, using hand screened Asian papers, acrylics and watercolors to create art that expresses the great necessity for balance in life. She studied Japanese art with Shozo Sato at Japan House at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, and at Professor Sato's Japanese Arts Workshop in Fort Bragg, California. Intrigued with the feelings of playfulness and happiness, she translates the joy she feels in making the art to the viewer. Her art cards are sold in Europe as well as the United States.
