Often we do not find our path in life until we see it below our feet.

Ohio native Jeannette Pomeroy Parssi found her path in 1994 when she left the corporate world to pursue art.

She has studied with renowned artists Graham Nickson, dean of the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture; and Miraslov Antic, instructor at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She also has traveled extensively to many locales in Europe to hone her craft, sometimes alone and other times part of a group of artists, but always with the goal of becoming a better artist.

It’s not often that a person has an opportunity to follow their dreams, to dedicate their lives to something they truly love. Knowing she is fortunate to be in this position, Jeannette never takes her life, or her art, for granted.
