To list but a few of her projects/adventures/endeavours/etc./etc ……Jeanne……….Was a winner in the fundraiser TAK’ ME OOT in 2017 https://www.facebook.com/TakMeOotOrkney/ (Jeanne’s the one in the ’flapper’ outfit!) – Has had a gallery/shop called Artworks of the Earth, occupying various premises in Stromness https://jeannebouzarose.me/ – Has been one of the Artists in Residence at the Ness of Brodgar archaeology dig for the past few years https://www.nessofbrodgar.co.uk/trust/ – And now her fame has spread!

Major Kudos to Jeanne!
