Bio:

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

With a background in graphic design and illustration, she creates patterns and illustrations that aim to honor and beautify the everyday. She usually needs to look no further than her kitchen or backyard for inspiration.

Her works are a mix of traditional art materials, such as pen & ink, gouache, and watercolors, and digital media.
