Jeannie E. Roberts's work has evolved in style and technique from her highly-detailed abstract and representational pencil drawings of the late 1970's and 1980's, to her abstract and pattern-rich acrylic and oil color-field painting of the 1990's, to her more representational acrylic and oil paintings of today. Her subject matter is typically highly-stylized and focuses on the organic forms, shapes, and design elements found outdoors. Her imagery also follows the mystical, ceremonial and communicative 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).
