Jeanne Poulet is totally committed to Printmaking, Etching, Engraving. Her work is about the Human Spirit. She records an emotional, invented Image of Good and Evil in the Human Condition and of Man’s Inhumanity to Man.
Jeanne says that her life’s work is committed to understanding the process that makes one person full of love, respect, and giving, and another person, a violent bastion of hate. She adds prose/poetry to my invented images.
Born in Montreal, Canada, in 1933, of mixed races, speaking three languages; French, German, and Dutch. Her first nine years of life were filled with cultural upheavals; opera, classical music, literature, and then, unexpected poverty and repeated injustices.
You can see more examples of Jeanne’s work on her YouTube Page.
