Jean was born and educated in Charleston, South Carolina. At an early age, she was awarded a scholarship to Gibbs Gallery in Charleston, but like so many artists she chose to make a career in business. “Art tugs at my soul,” Jean says, and so upon retirement she moved enthusiastically into the world of art. She has studied with a number of well-known artists here in Florida.
Jean enjoys painting a variety of subjects, always injecting the human element into her seascapes, and landscapes. Her medium of choice is oil, and she loves to do pen and ink drawings. “Oils allow the flexibility and range that I find so exciting.”
Jean welcomes commission for portraits or other subjects.
