My art is largely a mystery to me. I aim for precision of emotion, vibrance of color, and if I'm lucky a bit of chaos emerges. I rarely set out with an intention to communicate to anyone but myself, but genuinely hope that if I succeed at convincing myself, others will also feel the intensity of the inspiration. I like to work with an edge of fear that what I want to do is beyond my capabilities, and that I can do better with each painting in terms of taking chances. The subject matter and levels of realism are broad, but my voice comes through with the bold colors which define my work.
Jeanette Powers is a graduate physics student at the University of Kansas and a self-taught painter. Her expressionist paintings are imaginative and intense and have been collected for the last ten years throughout North America. She enjoys representing chaotic motion and fluid dynamics in her paint application, without losing the focus of the mind. Portraiture is the mainstay of her work thanks to her belief in the importance of friends and family. Ms. Powers currently lives in Kansas City, Missouri with her family.
