While many unleash their teenage angst in songs, poems and misdemeanors, Jeannette found her means of soul and heart expression through painting and working with clay. Her loyalty to clay has been unwavering from the day she took her first pottery class in 1984. When not playing with clay she works as a community building social worker developing programs to reduce poverty, enhance community safety and inclusion.
