illustration and surface pattern

Ever since “beautifying” her family’s kitchen chairs with crayons as a child, Jean has been devoted to making the world a little “prettier” through her artwork.

She is an illustrator and teacher. She has created illustrations for packaging and greeting cards, and more recently has turned to

surface pattern.

She also wrote, illustrated and animated an interactive children’s book, “All Different Colors.”

When she’s not making art or communing with nature, she loves to gather her family around the table for a meal.
