Jean is an attorney and owner of a wealth management firm. She did not go to art school, but grew up surrounded by paintings and painters. For most of her life she spent her visual energy appreciating the art of others, a practice which she enthusiastically continues to this day. In fact, she describes herself as the woman who will never have a new kitchen because she will always buy another painting instead. That said, she picked up a paint brush ten years ago and surprised herself. She began to see her favorite places more intensely, and found herself transported to a different plane of existence as she painted those places. She paints "the way her subjects make her feel," and hopes she can thereby share some of that experience with her viewers.
