Jeanne Vockroth Crowder was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana where she spent an idyllic childhood until Hurricane Katrina moved her and her family to Fayetteville, Arkansas. In Fayetteville, Jeanne discovered the power of the creative process to cope her trauma from Hurricane Katrina. Jeanne graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sculpture in 2013 from the University of Arkansas and has studied textiles and pattern design abroad in Florence, Italy and at Penland School of Craft in North Carolina. In 2016, Jeanne moved back to New Orleans where she worked as an art educator. In 2017, Jeanne established Jeanne Vockroth Art + Design to connect with her community through her surface patterns and hand sewn textiles. Jeanne sews, paints, and spoils her tiny dogs in Uptown New Orleans with her husband.
