Jeanie Eddleman’s graphite rendered drawings are based upon historic photographs of buildings of the southeast Missouri area.  She draws accurate representations of each building that are skillfully rendered in detail.  Architecture and love for nostalgia has motivated this artist to develop her talent.  She hopes to include others in remembering the memories from the past and to preserve historically what has been lost.

Jeanie Eddleman resides in Marble Hill. She is a retired art teacher, founder and president of the Cat Ranch Art Guild, and Chairman of the Board of the Tom Runnels Memorial Scholarship Fund.  She created a networking system between artists and art groups in the southeast Missouri area promoting their activities. Jeanie is involved with the First Friday with the Arts promoting the arts in Cape Girardeau and a member of the Arts Council.  She is a juried member of the Best of Missouri Hands artists. Jeanie manages and shows her work in WESTRAY Studio at 223 South Plaza Way in Cape Girardeau, MO.
