About Jean


Bio

Art is my passion, my companion, my voice and my visual soul. My first one women exhibit was on the underside of my Grandmother's kitchen table at the age of three. Since that time, I have completed several public art commissions, received several grants, including three grants from The National Endowment of the Arts, and taught at SDCC for 12 years. My teaching experience covers, college, hight school, and older adults. I am presently a volunteer Grandparent to foster youth in San Diego,...

Art is my passion, my companion, my voice and my visual soul. My first one women exhibit was on the underside of my Grandmother's kitchen table at the age of three. Since that time, I have completed several public art commissions, received several grants, including three grants from The National Endowment of the Arts, and taught at SDCC for 12 years. My teaching experience covers, college, hight school, and older adults. I am presently a volunteer Grandparent to foster youth in San Diego, CA.

In 1989, I received a scholarship to study fine art at the University of Madrid, Spain. One of my many passions is sharing what I have learned with others through teaching. I have exhibited throughout the United States, Europe, Mexico, and Japan.

I try to encourage my students not to take the easy road, but to be persistent yet allow art to find it's own voice. I have found that many times too much control can stifle and smother the creativity just under the surface. Many times I have what I believe to be a steadfast idea, only to have that idea come to a cross in the road. I would like my students to fine the courage to take the road less traveled and have a little trust, not only in themselves but also in the art itself.

I am patient, caring, interested and commented to my students. I have found that I learn just as mush as I share.
I emphasize that drawing is a skill that must be practiced. That after learning some of the techniques of painting, developing your own techniques and styles is a precursor to that first step down that road less traveled.
Life is short not to have a little adventure.

Drawing

I have been teaching drawing and painting for 45 plus years. As a Grandparent to 100+ foster teens, I have taught and tutored for the past 15 years. Through older adult programs and private classes, my students have exhibited and sold their works. I have worked with the same group for more than four years.
Painting

Painting

I am presently teaching painting in my studio where my students are exhibiting and selling their work. I work with older and younger adults, middle and high school age youth. I have taught in high school after school programs and older adult facilities. I have also taught painting as a Grandparent to 100+ foster youth for the past several years. My students have been invited to exhibit and sell their work through the county of San Diego. During that time they sold almost all of their paintings and received the funds.
