Quiet Happiness: Watercolors by Jeanette Walker

Artist’s Statement

I am delighted to show my work at Asheville Community Theatre. Here at ACT, my family and friends have spent many happy hours.

This collection of watercolors reflects my recent discovery of happiness as an introvert, enjoying moments, relationships and ordinary situations. My previous work in several mediums including ceramics and pencil was influenced more by my life as a nurse, a community and labor organizer, and social justice activist. Making art is who I am, and back then I did it as I did every thing in my life… at high speed.

I have recently come out on the other side after a debilitating illness. These watercolors reflect a quieter life. A life where I have learned to accept, adapt, let go, and embrace what I have that is good.

I live in West Asheville with my wife Paula. We have no cats.
