Born in 1952 Jean is a self-taught artist living and working in the South Hams. Painting started as a hobby, but gradually became a more important part of her life, now as a full time artist she paints most days.
Jean works mainly in acrylic and watercolour, but over the years has used most mediums reflecting primarily her love of colour. Early inspiration came from a trip to Venice, where she was overwhelmed by the beauty of the architecture reflected in water.
Since the early days her subject matter has broadened considerably, though the influence of Venice with its richness and decorative designs are still apparent.
Jean's paintings are in collections both in this country and abroad, her paintings are in numerous galleries in the UK, and she has had many solo, and mixed exhibitions.
