About

Jeaneen Carlino is a Los Angeles based, Mexican American Artist who creates strong, empowered women surrounded by their natural habitats.  Vibrant patterns, exotic creatures and scenic landscapes set the backdrop for her female community.  Whether they be contemporary portraits taken from her childhood, empowered warrior women, or divinities inspired by Goddess culture, Jeaneen’s mission is to depict a diverse feminine tribe that enlightens humanity through their illustrative narratives.  These women exude love, fertility, gratitude, healing, courage & grace.

In addition to drawing and painting with her personal work, Jeaneen loves creating hand lettered fonts and surface pattern designs.  As a former artist for Trader Joe's, she got to know chalkboard art, signage and how to advertise a product well.  She's also had the privilege of creating murals and exploring scale.  Jeaneen looks forward to building with others and spreading her creativity around, where it's meant to land.

When Jeaneen isn't channeling her creativity, she's a wife and mama to her baby boy.
