About Jean

I embrace materials that once may have been deemed too low for fine art. Many of the objects I repurpose have an aged patina, suggesting another time. I enjoy turning these familiar objects into — if I have succeeded — poetic artworks.

 

I have exhibited at the Abecedarian Gallery (Denver, CO), Target Gallery at the Torpedo Factory (Alexandria, VA), Ridgefield Guild of Artists (Ridgefield, CT), 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.
