Jeanine started painting at age six, alongside her identical twin sister Julie, in Woodstock, IL. Both girls studied art throughout childhood with private lessons, and continued through college. Now in Los Angeles, Jeanine continues to further her education, having studied at the Artelier Artien in Paris, France; Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art; and under renowned artists such as Robert Liberace, Michael Siegel and William Cochran.
Jeanine established Hattas Public Murals in 2002 after painting an underwater mural in her friend's bathroom. Over 2,000 portrait and mural commissioned pieces later, Jeanine still loves the challenge of bringing a client's story to life in an impactful, memorable way.
When she's not painting, Jeanine most enjoys cooking for and hanging out with her family and friends.
Jeanine lives in Los Angeles, California with her husband Jason.
