Several years ago, while on a boat with my husband, a purple satin party dress fell in the ocean. The accidental image created exquisite shape, texture and movement of light on water and fabric. This inspired my latest series of paintings. The dress revealed itself as a metaphor. A dreamlike narrative, more poetry than prose transpired. The worn and well-traveled dress, mysterious and fragile is renewed by light and water.

Jean speaks publicly about her work in relationship to her personal life experiences and faith, which illuminates more thoroughly the unique and powerful meaning embedded in her paintings.
