About Jeannette Kiel
Jeannette is an ecofeminist artist that utilizes several media types including painting, photography, and mixed-media. She includes found objects from nature, and also creates art by reusing and upcyling "trash." She is originally from San Diego, CA and currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. Jeannette’s ecofeminist creative and academic work is inspired by the belief that all forms of injustice are interconnected to nature and that these must be addressed to create real change and transformation for peace and partnership to thrive in our world. Her artwork also addresses her identification as a Mestiza or mixed-race Filipino-Black woman. She believes that conscious creative work can be used to help open peoples minds as well as connect to new ideas and thoughts on a deeper level, and that this is the key to cultural, social, and spiritual revolution.
Jeannette has a Ph.D. in Philosophy and Religion with a focus in Women's Spirituality from the California Institute of Integral Studies located in San Francisco, CA. She also has an MA in Women's Studies from San Diego State University and a BA in Psychology from Alliant International University, both located in San Diego CA.
