About me and my connection to fiber art & mixed media
Pink Earth, also known as Jeanette Ross, lived in McCormick County in South Carolina for eighteen years and now lives in Abbeville, SC. She began painting and making pottery as a child and became more serious about it as a teen. She graduated from the University of South Carolina in 1984 with a B.A. in Studio Art and then worked for several years in the field of graphic design. She married Don Ross in 1989 and settled down in McCormick. They have a 13 year old daughter, three goats, three dogs, and two cats. Jeanette paints at home and has her pottery studio at the McCormick Arts Council. Check out her web site at www.pinkearthstudio.com.
Brief Artist’s Statement
“I am awed and inspired by the beauty of God’s creation and thankful for my gift to express myself through art. I paint people, places and animals that touch my heart and radiate God’s graciousness. There has always been a warm place in my heart for animals, but my work is mostly about bold vibrant color. No matter what subject I decide to paint or what medium I work with (acrylics, watercolor or clay), the bright palette is what makes my work stand apart. Humor is also an important part of my work. When people see my work I want them to giggle or at least smile.”
