An upbringing in the French countryside and a current life in semi rural England has led Jeannelise to focus on displacement and memory. Jeanneslise says of her work, "It is informed by my own human history and the memories attached to it: I explore my own human condition and the work is inspired by my French childhood watching my father restoring antiques and work with wood as well as seeing both my parents creating refined furniture and paintings in the Chinese lacquer style."
