Jeannie Palmer Moore - Escondido, CA

1.  What do you call yourself - art wise? A painter and mixed media artist who loves texture.
2.  How do you jump start your creativity when you are in a slump? I will refer to a notebook where I’ve written down or sketched new ideas I want to try.  I’m constantly observing everything around me in my daily life. Looking at anything that could create a texture.
3.  If money wasn't an issue, what would you do with your art?  I’d build a large gallery and studios for all of my artist friends.
4.  Do you keep a sketchbook, journal, etc.? I keep a sketchbook when I travel but are more sporadic about sketching at home.
5.  Where can people see your other work this year?  I show at my local gallery in Escondido, Quilting Arts TV Series 700 and Quilting Arts Magazine.
6.  Do you teach?  where?  I’ll be teaching at CREATE in Costa Mesa in May, as well as, CREATE in Chicago again this August.
7.  Is there a particular artist who had influenced you in your art life? and why? I admire so many artists but the painter; Edward Hopper has influenced me on how he creates solitude and introspection in his paintings.
8. Where or what show do you hope your work will be in someday? I would love to show in Quilt National but do need to make the quilt and enter first.
9.  Describe your studio workspace.  My studio is in my home with 3 big work tables, a design wall, storage and lots of light. My 2 cats reside there too.
10.  What 3 tools could you not live without? I couldn’t be without a paintbrush, my Bernina and my thermo faxes.
11.  What drives you to make the work that you do? I just love to create. I think I have a lifetime full of ideas but am just trying to find time to produce all of them.
12.  How do you balance your life? Balance is pretty easy for me because my husband is very supportive and independent. I guess being happily married for 35 years helps. And I make time for Pilates 3 days a week!
