JELAINE FAUNCE STUDIO






ABOUT JELAINE

Jelaine is a contemporary realism painter currently residing in Las Vegas, NV. Her preferred medium is oil on canvas, and she works in the still life genre. She prefers bold colors and strong contrasts between light and shadow, and typically chooses subjects that give a sense of intimacy, abundance, serenity or humor. She also finds it difficult to type about herself in the third person, so do know that she cringed mightily while writing this bio. Also, don’t send her your Jenny Craig bill if you happen to gain weight from viewing her website. Apologies.
