About Jean

Beyond the obvious beauty of age and patina, the use of vintage and antique papers and objects allows me to play with the concept of time. I am shortening the distance between past and present, simultaneously making the past accessible and addressing current sociopolitical issues. My assemblage work attempts to create a three-dimensional commentary on topics that both unite and divide us.

 

I have exhibited at the First Street Gallery (New York, NY), Abecedarian Gallery (Denver, CO), Target Gallery at the Torpedo Factory (Alexandria, VA), Ridgefield Guild of Artists (Ridgefield, CT), Front Street Gallery (Patterson, NY), Putnam Arts Council (Mahopac, NY), Garrison Art Center (Garrison, NY), Mahopac Public Library (Mahopac, NY), Look Art Gallery (Mahopac, NY), The Hat Factory (Peekskill, NY), Katonah Village Library (Katonah, NY), Webster Arts Center (St. Louis, MO), East Hawaii Cultural Center (Hilo, HI) and Mills Pond House Gallery (Smithtown, NY).

 

My mixed media work was featured in the May/June 2015 issue of Cloth Paper Scissors, a publication that explores collage and mixed media techniques.

 

My work is in the permanent collections of the Amarillo Museum of Art (Amarillo, TX), University of Wisconsin (Marshfield/Wood County Campus, WI), Puke Ariki Museum and Library (New Plymouth, New Zealand), ArtColle Museum of Collage (Plemet, France), Tsanko Lavrenov National High School of Fine Arts (Plovdiv, Bulgaria) as well as in many private collections.

 

I live and work in the Hudson Valley.
