Lately, she’s been preoccupied with the movement and shimmer of bodies of water disturbed by outside forces.

Jean lives in Providence, Rhode Island, and works among a community of artists in nearby Pawtucket. She has shown her work in various group and solo shows in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Washington D.C., as well as other venues across the United States.

Her work is in private collections throughout the United States and Europe.
