Jeanne Ciravolo’s mixed media work explores family narratives, amplifying female experience–while challenging art historical depictions of women.
Raised in Miami, Florida, Ciravolo moved to New York City, where her early work was influenced by her experiences as class monitor for Harvey Dinnerstein at the Art Students’ League of New York. In 2006, she was one of eleven finalists in the Portrait Society of America’s International Portrait Competition. At that time, Ciravolo’s observational art practice supported her work as a commissioned portrait painter. Her portrait of Connecticut Supreme Court Justice David Borden was unveiled at the Appellate Court in Hartford, Connecticut in 2016.
