About the Artist


Juannie Eng has been a California painter and professional artist for almost 20 years, but her pathway has followed a distinctive route. For 10 years as a fashion designer in New York, working for Jones New York, Tahari, Ellen Tracy, and Harve Benard, she developed

the textile designs and color palettes for many collections. She knew how to use color, texture, and shape to elicit a mood and response. A move to San Francisco in 1993 began a search for a new creative direction, primarily through a focused exploration of oil painting. Four years ago, she started her  artisan jewelry line, Elementale Designs. The colors, shapes and textures of raw and refined materials were artistically combined  to create  uniquely  beautiful jewelry.

     She received her Associate in Applied Science degree in Fashion Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, where she acquired the foundation in color theory, life drawing, rendering and illustration. She furthered her Fine Arts education with classes in oil painting and watercolor, life drawing, abstract art, and portraiture from the San Francisco Institute of Art and City College of San Francisco. She also earned a MBA from the Wharton Graduate School of Finance and a BA in Economics from Wesleyan University. Juannie also has had previous careers in finance and advertising.
