Featured Artist for October - Jean Gill
Jean K. Gill, AWS, NWS is an artist, juror and educator who taught watercolor classes to adult learners for over twenty years. She encourages students to try everything but to find their own artistic voices. In her own process, Jean enjoys using pure hues with a full value range, and she paints vertically, aiming to capture the watercolor’s motion in her finished work. Her paintings have appeared in more than 150 juried shows and in numerous art publications, including International Artist, American Artist, Watercoor and multiple volumes of Splash and Artistic Touch. Her work has won awards in annual international exhibitions of both the American and National Watercolor Societies. In 2010, she was one of 20 American artists included in the Zhujiajiao International Watercolour Biennial Exhibition in China, and in 2018 she returned to China where her watercolors were exhibited in three shows.
