Working in all kinds of settings, from tide pools to farm fields to her own backyard in upstate New York, Jean’s watercolors reflect a keen eye for detail and profound sense of wonder. She is the author/illustrator of The Nature Explorer's Sketchbook (2020). Jean teaches online and in-person classes and offers immersive workshops nationally and internationally.
