Jeanie Posey works primarily in oil on canvas, although she often paints in watercolor and acrylics during her travels. Her paintings reflect her love of coastal scenes and action portraits of subjects at work or play. As a long time resident of Marietta and Roswell, Jeanie has been an active part of the art community and now spends her time painting and playing tennis.
While she has enjoyed painting since childhood, the pursuit of her passion for art was delayed while she worked as a high school science teacher, curriculum specialist, director of several state and local teacher/school improvement programs and Deputy State Superintendent of Education for the State of Georgia.
Since retiring and becoming serious about her work as an artist, she has sought to enhance her skills by studying under many notable artists. She has been recognized by her peers in juried competitions and has won awards in shows in Georgia and Florida. She is a member of the Roswell Fine Arts Alliance, the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County Florida and The Women’s Art Network. She is available for commissioned pieces.
