About Jean

Beyond the distinctive beauty of age and patina, the use of vintage papers and objects with separate histories 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 creates a three-dimensional commentary on topics that both unite and divide us.


I have exhibited in galleries all over the country, and 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.


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 studio is in the Hudson Valley, about 1 hour north of NYC. If you are interested in any work seen here on my website, or if you would like to discuss a commission, please contact me through the link on this site.
