Galleries: Portraits

Jeanne Pacella


I was delighted to have this  portrait of Jeanne selected for the Society of Women Artists 159th Annual Open Exhibition 2020. Normally this exhibition would have taken place at the Mall Galleries but due to Covid it was held online.

‘Jeanne’ is a portrait of Jeanne Pacella an established and eclectic designer who takes vintage jewellery,discarded objects and a variety of materials and then injects them with new life and as she says ‘to create a bricolage of beauty’

This is a good example of one of my head and shoulders portraits that has personal details added at the request of the sitter.The Portrait includes three of Jeanne’s Vintage inspired accessories.The hat is a beautiful example of one of her hats and the beautiful Vintage brooch and elegant glasses serve to add the finishing touch.

Jeanne’s  beautiful collection of hats can be seen at
