Jeanette Simmons

At the age of 11, Jeanette started a family newspaper that highlighted a female superhero. She has been creating stories through her art ever since. She favors the fun side of life, sprinkled with a touch of beauty and lots of humor.

Born and raised in the Metro-DC area, she grew up in the museums of the Smithsonian Institution. Art and museums became a passion from an early age, and she moved to New York to pursue her creative studies at Pratt Institute. She continued to study Illustration at both the Passalacqua School of Drawing and Dalvero Academy. 

A natural storyteller, Jeanette’s work is varied and includes textile design, reportage, children’s books, environmental issues, and human and animal rights.
