Studio #97

Raised in the south, Jean Plumer's love of art has inspired her to explore many mediums. She has enjoyed photography, painting in watercolors and oils, and was a graphic designer for many years. She feels this diverse background enhances her current job as an art teacher for children.  Jean enjoys introducing her students to these exciting, diverse artists as she teaches them the joy of art.
Jean’s latest work explores the theme of our relationship to nature, often using the image of deer as a vehicle for expression. These paintings are in acrylic combined with maps, and are often painted or collaged in the work.
