Jean Seymour

Jean Seymour's artistic leanings were revealed at a very young age as she spent her free time dreaming and drawing. But it took a long time in her adult life before she focused on painting. She has studied under such masters as Daniel Green, Irwin Greenberg, Alan Flattmann, Joseph Lorusso, Sally Strand and Mario Robinson.

Challenged by a blank canvas, she follows her natural tendencies to experiment, beginning with no preconceived image. Randomly and intuitively she layers, patterns and blends color adding hand painted papers along the way, all the while remaining open to the dialogue of the painting. Although the majority of her work consists of mixed water media, she works in all mediums maintaining an interest in drawing and painting the figure.

She is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America, International Society of Acrylic Painters and the Mississippi Watercolor Society.
