Artist Jean Corbett
Jean has a love of people as well as watercolors and pencils. She has combined these loves to create lasting portraits of loved ones for family, friends, and clients. Jean says, "the portraits are there, just under the surface of the paper, waiting to come out." Flowers are treated as portraits as well, capturing the essence of the flower.
Jean has taken classes at Watkins Institute in Nashville, Cheekwood Botanical Gardens in Nashville, and Santa Barbara Botanical Gardens in California. She has studied with Zoltan Szabo, Jean Grasdorf, Suzanne Winton, Hazel King and Urban Bird among others. These master painters have contributed to her style and her love of watercolors.
Jean is a member of the Watauga Valley Art League and the Tennessee Watercolor Society and has been a member of the Tennessee Art League and an Artist Member of the Rhode Island Watercolor Society. She has received several awards for her paintings in the 1990's and was juried into the Central South Art Exhibition in Nashville in 1996.
