About Jeannina Blanco

 
 
  • Biography

    Born in Costa Rica. I healed with art after brain surgery in 1998 in California, and everything became art! I have exhibited solo and collectively in the US, Poland, France, Nicaragua, Argentina, Ecuador, and Costa Rica. I now divide my time between Southern California and Costa Rica. I am grateful that my artwork is collected around the globe.

    I did not choose to be an artist, Art chose me!  It found me, healed me, and gave me a great reason to live on this fascinating path I have traveled.  I do not cease to be wondered.  To me, the artistic creation is an act of Love.
