Jeanne Philippus grew up on a farm in Shiner, Texas. Inspired by her father’s love of art, she developed her own style using leftover paint and items she found on the farm. In her late twenties, Jeanne lost her husband to cancer after only a few short years of marriage. While grieving such a great loss, Jeanne began incorporating broken glass in her art as a metaphor for her life. Creating beautiful art from broken and discarded materials was a crucial part of her healing process. Combining acrylics, resins and recycled glass, Jeanne began creating unique art that set the stage for her future as an artist.
Jeanne currently resides in San Antonio, Texas where she owns The Shard Studio. The Shard Studio is a modern art gallery and teaching studio featuring abstract, contemporary and coastal art.
