Jean grew up in Naples, Italy, New Orleans and the Carolinas. She completed her education with an MFA (Painting and Drawing) at James Madison University in Virginia. Her art career has led her to Moscow, Russia as a set designer and she regularly returns to Italy, France, and Ireland (often leading painting workshops). She was awarded a residency at Chateaux Orquevaux in September 2019. When not working plein-air, she creates large-scale paintings in her studio, Dilworth Artisan Station in Charlotte, NC.
“Inspiration surrounds us. But the well I return to most often is to the history of the art form I love. Painters from Bruegel to Klimt, Goya, Degas to the improvisation of Joan Mitchell. Many of the themes demonstrated remain relevant to today’s world.”
