Jeanette Luchese’s interdisciplinary practice embraces the ‘now’ with a focus on perception. A first-generation Italian-Canadian settler with roots in the design arts, Luchese creates intuitively with a mindful preference in cross-pollinating disciplines of drawing, painting, printmaking, painting, sculpture and sound. She is a graduate of the School of Design and Visual Art, Georgian College (Barrie) and the School of Design, Sheridan College (Oakville), currently residing in Innisfil, Ontario. Jeanette exhibits internationally and regionally at numerous public galleries including the MacLaren Art Centre, Quest Art Gallery (Midland) and the Orillia Museum of Art & History, with notable solo exhibitions at Aurora Cultural Centre 2015 (Aurora), and Campus Gallery 2018, (Barrie).
