ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Chris Jeanguenat is a Suffolk painter, whose fun, illustrative paintings reflect her love of nature and adventure. She works primarily in acrylic and chalk paint, and will paint anything if it stands still long enough. Her inspiration is taken from raising two sons, with her playful pitbulls and her husband and high school sweetheart. Her childhood adventures, from living in 300 acres of solitary forests , digging for treasures, building forts, climbing trees with books and snacks, are threaded within her paintings. Chris hopes the viewer can feel as if they’ve stepped in to their own magical childhood memories.
Chris was awarded the T.S. Elliot award for Excellence in Painting at the 2021 Port Warwick Arts and Sculpture Festival, Best in Show at the Fall 2021 Stockley Gardens Arts Festival, and the Jane Butler Memorial Award at the 2021 Suffolk Art Gallery Juried Exhibition. This year she received 2nd place at the Seawall Arts Festival in September. She currently shows her work at the Bay School Community Arts Center, Pop Shop by Jo Louise in Newport News as well as local restaurants, coffee houses and shops. She also has been a featured artist at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens in 2021 and 2022 .
She welcomes customers to her home studio, for coffee, friendship and viewing her paintings, in downtown Suffolk.
