Jeannie Burt was raised on a farm in Oregon. There were six, counting her, in her high school graduating class. She was related to half of them, a situation that fostered neither romance, nor privacy or adventure, but it did tend to keep her in line.
Her career in business and human resources allowed her to escape the confines of small-town life; she lived in San Francisco, New York and Milano where she became passionate about art. She adores Paris and visits often.
