Jean was born in London and has been involved in art all her life. She gained her qualifications in the UK and her works hang in private collections throughout New Zealand, Australia, Europe, Canada and South Africa. Jean exhibited and taught art in Whanganui for several years before finally moving to Mangawhai in 2012.
Jean is presently very involved in the local art scene, and has opened her studio for the Mangawhai Artist Art Trail in on several occasions.
Jean has worked with a variety of media over her career, including oils, water-colour, textiles and printmaking, but her present preference is acrylics, often applying strong bright colours. She enjoys experimenting with new techniques and strives to evolve different styles as she progresses. She is inspired by interesting local scenes, typically New Zealand views, objects and buildings and any natural forms in nature.
Jean's artworks may be viewed by appointment.
