Hi my name is Jean; I am a self-taught artist who works from my studio at home, in oil paint on canvas, My main subjects being Landscapes and Seascapes. I have recently undertaken portraiture, of which I am thoroughly enjoying and a new and challenging area for myself. I also have an extremely keen interest in Photography and I often paint from my collection of pictures, they prove an invaluable source of reference on wet and windy days when it is impossible or impractical to paint al-fresco, as I am unenthusiastic about sitting in bad weather.
I graduated from university in 2007 with a B.A (hons) in Fine Art Painting. I was under the illusion 'whilst at university' that I would be learning to paint similar to the 'Great Masters' like Caravaggio, Constable or J.M.W Turner, by learning their intricate techniques and styles. But; my tutors steered me into the direction of Instalation projects, (with the minimalist amount of painting) instead; working with wood and cardboard cut-outs like the famous silhouette artist 'Kara Walker' this was my path for the next 3-years.
Iconic buildings and areas of outstanding natural beauty have inspired my traditional styled paintings. Cannock Chase Forest in Staffordshire has proved to be a gem of inspiration over the years with its beautiful panoramic vistas, wildlife and seasonal colours My Galleon ships from a bygone era are resurrected in my Seascape paintings, with light playing a major role in the overall atmospherics of my work.
