THE STORY OF AN ACTRESS, PERFORMER AND CREATIVE ARTIST; -Upon retiring from show business at the beginning of the 1990s Jean began painting as a hobby but quickly realised she had a talent for art. Because of this Jean decided to take her art seriously and this led to Jean attaining a BA Hons degree in Fine Art in 2002.
Since gaining her Degree, Jeans new found the career as an artist has gone from strength to strength. As a professional artist, Jeans work sells not only throughout the UK but also Ireland, France, Spain, Portugal, Germany and as far away as North America, Mexico, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand. Jean is truly an international artist. Jean Say's; - After gaining my art degree I didn’t know what to do next, so I applied to the Digswell Art Trust for a fellowship. The Digswell Arts Trust is a charity that for over fifty years has focused on artists in the early phase of their careers. To my surprise, I was accepted and it was here I experimented and developed my own style of painting. Up to this point, selling my paintings had not occurred to me. A chance meeting on a train, with an editor of an art magazine who was interested in my life story, led to an article in that magazine which was seen by a major art publishing company. The rest, as they say, is history!
