Jeannie E. Roberts's work has evolved in style and technique from her early pencil abstracts, to her pattern-rich acrylic and oil color-field paintings, to her more representational colored pencil and mixed-media drawings of today. Her subject matter varies from the organic forms, shapes, and design elements found in nature to the mystical, ceremonial and picture-writing symbols created by ancient civilizations, cultures, and religions. She admires the work of Emily Carr (1871-1945), Frida Kahlo (1907-1954), and Georgia O'Keefe (1887-1986).

She has worked in freelance fashion and professional portrait photography. She continues to photograph nature, focusing on the shapes, textures, and natural design elements found outdoors. Her photos appear in online journals, magazines, and print anthologies, including An Ariel Anthology, Blue Heron Review, Bramble, Midwestern Gothic, Off the Coast, Portage Magazine, Presence, Quill & Parchment and elsewhere. She admires the work of James Balog (born 1952), Nadine Blacklock (1953-1998), and Toni Frissell (1907-1988).
