Jeanne Kuhns has what some may consider a dream career. She’s a singer-songwriter and painter, who owns Door County’s Lost Moth Gallery. Jeanne Kuhns’s family fueled her artistic side. Her grandmother, who knew Georgia O’Keefe, inspired her to paint. Her parents were folk music fans who played and listened to songs by Peter, Paul and Mary, Joan Baez, Pete Segar and others. Kuhns has had to put aside her artistic pursuits to meet life’s challenges. But she adds that’s what’s great about having artistic abilities.
Jeanne Kuhns’s career path started at art school, changed to zoological studies and finally ended in nursing school to support her family but art and music remain her life’s passions.
