Jeannie Allerton grew up in the suburbs of Phila, later spent 25 years in Monmouth County, NJ and now resides happily retired with her family in Havre de Grace, MD, a beautiful little city on the Chesapeake Bay.
Her father was an artist and Jeannie always wanted to learn from him. Since 2012, she has had the privilege to study painting on a weekly basis under nationally acclaimed and locally loved artist, Lee Alban. At Monmouth University she minored in art but majored in business-accounting to assure a good salary. Now that she has more time, she enjoys painting the scenes she captures with her camera. Her work is mostly in oils, some watercolor and photography. Jeannie also enjoys working with computer animation and digital art since taking courses recently at the local college.
Her inspiration comes from wanting to share the beauty she perceives around her in people, places and things.
Her art is displayed at Artists' Emporium, Concord Point Coffee, Concord Point Lighthouse and Keeper's House Museum
