ABOUT THE ARTIST

 

DSC_0045-Edit-1Years ago, I received a birthday gift that acted as a spark to my creative senses. I may not have realized it back then, but this rather small device, which people use mostly for phone calls, texting and social media, came to play a major role in my artistic development. Photography is now a passion thanks to an iPhone.
I predominantly shoot with an DLSR these days, but my iPhone is after all, the camera that is always with me. I photograph what I see and what moves me, be it just a fleeting moment. There is beauty in everything around us. It’s found in nature, the diverse landscape, the sunset, the ocean as well as the people and daily grind of city life, the abandoned buildings, the old, the rusty and the forgotten.   -Jeanette Serrat

Originally born and raised in Sweden, Jeanette moved permanently to the U.S. in 2002 and she is now residing in the Philadelphia area. The arts and many forms of creative expression has always been an important part of her life.
She has done everything from singing in small clubs back and private parties in Sweden to playing various instruments and writing music, painting, jewelry making and more recently, photography.
