Profile

Jeaneen Carlino is a Los Angeles based artist who creates female divinities. Inspired by Goddess culture and theological antiquity, she incorporates these themes into her own mythology. Her tribal women exist within a magical region of supernatural wonder. Through love, gratitude, fertility, healing, creating, destructing and guidance they represent the powers of nature and energies of the universe. They are Earth centered messengers answering their calling to enlighten humanity and guide us towards cosmic renewal. Through their own journeys, they each encounter perils, obstacles and good fortune. These deities view the universe as a masterpiece of abundance, wellness and inner peace. In ever-changing landscapes they exude unique characteristics often possessing anthropomorphic mystical powers and emerging as healers, cultivators of sustenance or warrioresses fighting off mental parasites. They coexist within a powerful tribe that has a conquest to awaken humanity. They are gift givers of the cosmic esthetic wonder who compel us to look inward towards the center of our own existence. Jeaneen’s life purpose is to share her creative vision with the universe through these spiritual creatures. Her work is channeled through her personal life experiences and lessons, taking inspiration from the gifts Mother Nature bestows upon her. Jeaneen graduated from Art Center College of Design in 2007.
