Jeannine Moeder is inspired by travel, yoga and meditation. She utilizes a combination of acrylics, ink, photographs, paper and textiles in her light-filled mixed-media art. Insight and peace are evoked from her work which evolves from an intuitive process of editing and layering photos from travel experience that has expanded her consciousness and mind while inspiring others to create and connect to their higher selves. Her artwork has landed in private collections, events, shows, retail shops and galleries including: Soulscape, Soul of Yoga, Earth's Elements in Encinitas, Laguna and Hermosa Beach and L.E.A.F- Live Enlightened and Free as well as wellness, meditation and yoga centers worldwide. Jeannine has also been a designer of jewelry, floral and events.
Born in New Jersey, Jeannine has always held a sacred space for art. She completed college on the east coast and moved west to Los Angeles for work in the social service field; followed by San Diego which became home twenty years ago. She has an undergraduate degree in Education and a Master’s degree in Educational Counseling. Her career in education and the non-profit sector have provided her opportunities to teach, counsel, coach, develop and manage programs as well as plan events for organizations serving the homeless, at-risk and foster youth, as well as individuals with Alzheimer's disease and dementia in Los Angeles and San Diego. She began teaching art, Japanese Manga and Cartooning, more than twelve years ago in an enrichment program for youth and continues to teach in that program with students in grades fifth - high school . Jeannine has over seven years of teaching experience in therapeutic painting and drawing classes weaving her therapy experience with her art teaching in individual and group classes. She is passionate about the power of art: the cathartic healing, mood elevating, confidence building, memory eliciting and voice providing. She also volunteers in her daughter's art program at school.
Her current artwork is mixed-media work inspired by travels in Japan, Thailand, Morocco and Bali. She has donated her work to support organizations such as the Louis Merrill Carcinoid Foundation, The YMCA for at-risk youth and women's leadership groups.
