About the Artist

“Art has been a thread throughout my life. It has spiraled through many forms and brought me in touch with many crafts, people, and places.”

Jeanne Bouza Rose

I may have been trained in New York but the paint brushes have moved the most in Scotland. Orkney is an inspiring place. Using watercolour, oil paint, and oil sticks, I paint its landscapes and sky on canvas, paper and lampshades in my Stromness studio/gallery. My oil paintings range from grandly large to small and intimate. Watercolours and prints are the average size.

I have been a steady volunteer at the Ness of Brodgar excavation https://nessofbrodgar.co.uk donating my artwork and painting as an artist in residence https://www.nessofbrodgar.co.uk/product/homage-print/

My studio has been a moving target and I have worked in all types of places. Recently, I choose the nice weather to paint in the plein air fashion and found some of my favourite landscapes under blue skys and with green fields.

ArtWorks of the Earth https://artworksoftheearth.com has been the name of my studio and it is now back on the street of Stromness at 59 Victoria Street, with my given name. I share the space with the Ginkgo Gallery.

Simply said and no matter what I use, I have fun when I paint!

What People Say

Jeanne, you are the best: knowledgeable, patient, and kind while offering constructive criticism. I have been ’white-lining’ every since our return from Orkney and I am someone who had never picked up a paint brush before. !

Mary — Scotland

You are one of the most inspiring people I have met in the last decade! Your art is like a warm fire in the dark of winter. And look what I found in a house in Budapest. It is one of your paintings! He was super appreciative of your work, just as I am.

George — Kenya

Orkney proved to be a very special place, welcoming, peaceful and comfortable. I can now journey back there in my mind whenever things here get out of hand. I truly felt like I had always been there.
