Jeanne Tremel (b. 1960) is a visual artist who has shown her works throughout the NYC area, the US and abroad. Born in Minneapolis, her formal art education began at St. Cloud State University, Minnesota (BFA) and continued in Chicago at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (MFA). Later, at the School of Visual Arts in NYC, she earned a Certificate in Art Therapy. She has exhibited her work most recently at Nancy Margolis Gallery, Pelham Art Center, David & Schweitzer Contemporary, Royal Society of American Art and Ground Floor Gallery. Her work has been reviewed in The New York Times, Time Out New York, and featured on many online venues, such as Woman Artist A Day, Left Bank Art Blog, Artefuse, Two Coats of Paint, and Gallery Travels. In November, 2015, she was interviewed about her work for The Huffington Post. She considers herself an abstract painter at heart, switching between oil and mixed media flat work and sculptural wall & floor pieces, and installations, all made of collected materials. She also enjoys the challenge of painting en plein air, especially seascapes. Jeanne has lived in Brooklyn for 26 years.
