______________________

JEAN, received her BFA in photography from Detroit's Center For Creative Studies, where she was trained in the traditional darkroom. Her pieces usually start with the creation of an original photograph. She conceptualizes and documents what instinctively catches her eye. She creates many of her images using "in the camera" selective focus. It's all about lighting, composition and knowing your lense. She creates both traditional and digital photographic prints, and often alters them with mixed media and found objects to create one of a kind pieces.

She is attracted to the concepts of nostalgia, she finds beauty in decay and loves abandoned artifacts, dolls and toys. Her “Doll Portraits” are basically self portraits that convey stories from her past.

"I'm very attracted to the concept of “another time/another place”. I embrace the element of surprise and let my intuition guide me. Satisfaction comes when I create work that has a feeling of my own personal herstory. I often feel like I’m making new work, in my present now, that really was from my past, that got buried and forgotten. It’s like being on treasure hunt, only without pirates, except for the muse of Johnny Depp". " I like it!"
