In 2010 she received the accolade "Best Young Artist" in the frame of Arte Laguna at the Arsenal of Venice, and is a laureate of the Pépinières Européennes for young artists; This distinction afforded her the opportunity of a three-month artist residency in Quebec. In 2011 and 2012 she completed new residencies in Finland and she was rewarded with a six-month residency in the Art Center "Ferme-Asile" in Switzerland, where she developed a series of sculptures and installations related to architecture. She has exhibited at the International Biennial for young artists in Moscow in 2010 and 2012, and she had her first major solo exhibition in the Cultural Center "Una Volta" in Bastia (Corsica) in 2011. Then, during 2012-13, Jeanne de Petriconi was a  Member of the Casa de Velázquez, French Academy in Madrid, for which the resulting work received the Wildenstein prize in Paris. In 2014 she exhibited Architectomie # 1 a large-sized aluminium sculpture in the Palacio de Cibeles in Madrid, in collaboration with Magda Bellotti Gallery and the support of the French Institute of Madrid.
