Embarking on a vivid journey through the palette of contemporary painter Jeanette Vertentes, we are welcomed into a world where large-scale, colourful creations resonate with the heartbeat of her coastal Connecticut surroundings.
Nestled in North Stonington, and caressed by the nearby sea, Jeanette's life is intricately interwoven with the playful presence of her dogs and the blossoming vitality of her gardens. Her vibrant paintings, thus, become a heartfelt homage to the place she reverently calls home.
Through each stroke and hue in her paintings, Jeanette’s distinctive style and exuberant spirit dance vividly across the canvas.

Her work emerges as a kaleidoscope of nature and emotion, reflecting her deep connection and admiration for her environment.
In her childhood, Jeanette honed her skills under the guidance of painter John Lutes, embracing a belief that "once envisioned in the mind, anything can be created." She further refined her artistic journey by earning a Bachelor of Fine Art with a focus in painting from Rhode Island College, where she immersed herself in the realms of color theory and composition.
Nowadays, Jeanette oscillates between her studio and the nation's most esteemed art shows during the spring and summer, engaging with teaching during the winter, and working on myriad commissions for a global audience. Her art, celebrated and cherished by many, becomes a vibrant echo of her surroundings and experiences.
