Jeanne Louise Chauffe has worked as a decorative artist for over 29 years. Close up details of nature and her reproduction work of pieces from the 16th century, romantic period and impressionism, inspire Chauffe’s technique and color palette. She has worked with every medium throughout the years, with gouache mosaics being her favorite. As a mosaic artist, she is inspired by the luxurious materials she has discovered around the world, including smalti pearls, vintage glass, gelded glass and stained glass.
Chauffe is a native Louisianan, and has a fine arts degree in music and a minor in psychology from the University of Southwestern Louisiana. For 4 years, she taught visual arts at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans. Her work has taken her around the country and abroad with time spent in France, New York, New Jersey, Mobile and New Orleans. Chauffe has been featured in publications such as Town & Country, Better Homes and Gardens, New Orleans Magazine and Gulf Coast Living Magazine, as well as the locally published Living Well magazine.
Chauffe’s commissioned work is developed with the client while at her studio or the client’s home. Works include decorative painting, restoration, luxurious mosaic frames and trompe L’oeil. She can be reached by phone or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
