An award winning artist and teacher, with an international reputation, Jean's biography has been published published in Who's Who in American Women, Who's Who in American Education, Who's Who in America and Who's Who in the World.
Although best known for her pen & ink sketches of historic buildings and local scenes, she preferred transparent watercolor because the medium is so challenging. The peace Jean experienced in nature is shared in her landscapes.
Her artwork is represented in numerous public and private collections, including President George Bush, Senator Tom Libous, former Governor George E. Pataki and former Congressman Matt Hugh.
In addition to her commissions and exhibits, Jean operated a privately owned business, "JFM Prints," that sold copyrighted reproductions of her paintings.
Jean was a charter member if the National Museum of Women in the Arts, past President of Tioga County Arts Council and past President of the Zeta Omicron Chapter of Kappa Pi International Art Fraternity.
