Jeanette Pasin Sloan
Jeanette Pasin Sloan (born 1946 Chicago) is an American visual artist who creates photorealist prints, as well as watercolors and drawings. Sloan was born in Chicago in 1946, the daughter of immigrants to the United States. She received her bachelors from Marymount College and her MFA from University of Chicago, in art history. She began her art career with paintings, after she gained her MFA, and while she was a "young mom in the western suburbs" of Chicago. As a young mother in the 1970s, with two small children, she would paint in her kitchen, after putting her children to sleep for the evening. Her oeuvre took a significant turn when she noticed a reflection in a toaster that she was painting. Sloan's work is in the collections of several major art museums and galleries, including in Palm Springs, the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution, the Art Institute of Chicago, and several other museums in the Midwestern United States. Her work is also in many private collections. Sloan designed bottle labels for Imagery Wines twice. She received a commission in 2011 from the Print Club of Albany.
