Jeanne Staples is a classically-trained painter, educated at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the pre-eminent institution of American realism.  A member of the Copley Society of Art in Boston, she has taught painting and drawing at the Albany Institute of History & Art, the Rensellaer County Council for the Arts, and was Coordinator of Education for the Empire State Plaza Art Collection, and the New York State Governor's Mansion in Albany.  

Her interests range from the evocative and timeless landscapes of Martha'sVineyard, where she has lived and worked since 1993, to figurative, narrative work - to more modernist interests with her series of 3-D paintings which explores the nexus of traditional realism and popular culture.

Jeanne Staples is represented on Martha's Vineyard by the Granary Gallery at 636 Old County Road, West Tisbury.
