Jeanie Posey loves working with oil on canvas, although she often paints in watercolor and acrylics during her travels. Her subjects reflect the beauty of coastal scenes and the charm of children (and grandchildren) at play. She is happiest when one of her action portraits is greeted with joyful tears. When she is not traveling, Jeanie spends her time painting and playing tennis.
While she has enjoyed painting since childhood, pursuit of her passion for art was delayed for over 40 years while she worked as a high school science teacher, a curriculum specialist, and, most recently, Deputy State Superintendent of Education for the State of Georgia. Since retiring and becoming serious about her work as an artist, she has studied under notables such as Michelle Torrez in Denver, Morgan Samuel Price in Apalachicola, and Thomas Nash, Nancy Franke, Margaret Dyer, and Gary Bodner in Atlanta.
She has been recognized by her peers in juried competitions and has won awards in shows in Georgia and Florida. She is represented in Florida at The Blue Giraffe Art Gallery in Inlet Beach, the Studio Gallery in Grayton Beach and venues hosted by the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County. In Atlanta her work has been featured at LM Gallery and in many venues sponsored by the Roswell Fine Arts Alliance.
